You can cook with mayonaise, such as mayonaise biscuits... etc! But what the reference to getting mayo hot was...do not let mayo sit at room temp (thus getting hot) as it will make you sick as a dog. Also once it is referigerated it should not come to room temp and then be returned to the fridge, that is dangerous, better to throw it out if you forget to put it back in the fridge. I have been the sickest I ever was from mayo that I was served at a JC Penney's restaurant years ago, both my Sis-In-Law and I got deathly ill, and we were the only two who ate mayo on our burgers. The mayo had obviously gone bad. That is why sandwiches in the summer time lunch box should have a ice pak to help keep the sandwich cool (if it contains mayo), and salads that contain mayo should not be left out very long in the heat of summer, it can and will spoil and folks will get sick!
But cooking with mayo is fine! Do not let it worry you!
