Homemade Mayonnaise Recipe


Homemade Mayonnaise Recipe

You've found my easy homemade mayonnaise recipe. (Well, the first one). Eating homemade mayonnaise used to be a luxury - but not anymore. With a pillowy texture, homemade mayo is nothing like the pale stuff you get out of a jar.

Mayo is the base recipe for other sauces out there - including: Aioli, Remoulade, Thousand Island dressing and much more.

Purists make mayonnaise by hand, but sad to say, I am no purist. I use the good ol’ blender and the mayonnaise is just as good and my arm is not aching from all that whisking.

TIPS: Have all the ingredients at room temperature before you start; the mayo will come together better. Also, because the eggs are not cooked make certain you use very fresh eggs.

Homemade mayo should be stored in an airtight container and can be kept in the refrigerator up to 4 days.

If you hand-mix the recipe, combine the yolk only with the mustard. (no egg whites) Whisking constantly, pour a thin stream of oil until completely incorporated and the mayo is thick. (This is when the whisk is lifted the mayo will stay on and not fall off.)

Next whisk in the lemon juice (or white wine vinegar) and season to taste with salt and pepper. Enjoy my homemade mayonnaise recipe. We sure do.


RECIPE FOR MAYONNAISE

1 large egg
1 TBS Dijon Mustard
1-1/3 cups canola oil
4 tsp fresh lemon juice or homemade white wine vinegar

In a food processor or blender, combine the egg with the mustard. With the appliance running, SLOWLY add the oil in a thin stream until it has combined with the egg mixture. Now add the white wine vinegar or lemon juice and pulse until combined. Season with salt and pepper.







HOMEMADE BACON MAYONNAISE RECIPE

1 cup homemade mayonnaise, recipe above
1 TBS chilled bacon grease
1 slice bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 TBS minced onion
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tsp white sugar
1/8 tsp salt

Process ingredients together in a blender or food processor. Place in the refrigerator until chilled. Serve on sandwiches, or in potato salad.






BEST RECIPE FOR MAYONNAISE (GREEN MAYO RECIPE)

2 TBS fresh lemon juice
2 TBS fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tsp fresh chives, finely chopped
1 tsp fresh tarragon, finely chopped

Blend to a fine puree and mix with 2 cups of homemade mayonnaise, recipe above.

You can adjust the amounts to get the shade of green and the flavor you like. Green mayo is great in potato or macaroni salad too. I have also used it in chicken salad sandwiches. Just add the crunch of your choice: pecans, walnuts or celery.




Use this homemade mayonnaise recipe for roast beef sandwiches.

HOMEMADE HORSERADISH MAYONNAISE RECIPE

1 cup vegetable oil
2-4 tsp homemade horseradish, drained*
1 egg
1/2 fresh lemon, juiced
1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp salt

Combine egg, lemon juice, mustard and salt in a blender or food processor. While appliance is running, slowly add the vegetable oil in a small stream until mayonnaise is processed. Add the horseradish and pulse quickly. Adjust the taste with salt, pepper and more lemon juice if you would like.

*You may also use freshly grated horseradish.




This homemade mayonnaise recipe creates mayo that tastes like Miracle Whip to me. You be the judge. Wash one of those store-bought jars and fill it up with the "good stuff." Makes approximately one quart.

TASTES LIKE "MIRACLE WHIP" SALAD DRESSING RECIPE

4 egg yolks
2 TBS powdered sugar, sifted
1 tsp kosher salt
1 TBS lemon juice
1/4 tsp paprika
1/8 tsp garlic powder
3 cups canola oil
3 TBS flour or cornstarch
2 tsp dry mustard
1 cup boiling water
6 TBS vinegar

In a food processor or blender, beat the yolks, salt, sugar, lemon juice, paprika and garlic powder until combined.

Beginning first with drops - SLOWLY add 1 cup of the canola oil in a small stream while the appliance is running until combined. Add the remaining 1/2 cup of oil slowly and process until smooth. Set aside.

Whisk the flour, mustard, boiling water and vinegar together together until creamy. Pour into a small saucepan and cook on low until smooth and continue to cook while it thickens. Slowly add this mixture to the homemade mayo that you set aside and blend until combined.

Pour into an airtight container and cool in the refrigerator overnight until serving. Homemade Miracle Whip that tastes so much better than store-bought and will save you money.




This homemade mayonnaise recipe creates mayo that tastes like Hellman's Mayonnaise, and is so much better than the store-bought version. People are usually either Miracle Whip or Hellman's fans, so I am offering you both recipes. Recipe adapted from Top Secret Recipes.

TASTES LIKE "HELLMAN'S" MAYONNAISE RECIPE

1 egg yolk
2-1/4 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp water
1/4 tsp salt + 1/8 tsp
1/4 tsp sugar + 1/8 tsp
1/4 tsp lemon juice (bottled okay)
1 cup canola oil

Whisk egg yolk by hand for 15 seconds.  Combine vinegar, water, salt, sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl or glass measuring cup.  Stir until salt and sugar are dissolved.

Add half of this solution to the egg yolk and whisk for another 15 seconds.  Pour the canola oil in a plastic squirt bottle (ketchup or mustard bottle you can buy at the store - This is so you can dribble the oil into the egg yolk with one hand while whisking with the other).

Squirt a few drops of oil into the yolk and whisk, continuing to add a little oil at a time while whisking non-stop.  When you have used about half of the oil, the mixture should be very thick.

Add the remaining vinegar solution and whisk.  Now you can add the remaining oil in a steady stream while whisking until all of the oil has been added.

Your mayonnaise should be thick and off-white in color.  Put mayo in old mayonnaise jar and seal with the lid.  Leave this on your counter for 8 to 10 hours so the vinegar and lemon juice can kill any potential bacteria in the egg yolk.  Then put in refrigerator.

Keep up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.  Makes one cup.

BEST French Vanilla Cake Recipe

French Vanilla Cake

"I have made this cake 3 times in the past 4 weeks and have been asked to make it again for St. Paddy's day and Easter! I should have it down to a science by then. It is simply delicious and I have received rave reviews! Thanks so much for posting what I consider to be the perfect vanilla cake recipe."  by Michelle


Creamy Homemade Ice Cream Recipes

Ice Cream Recipes

"Being an ice-cream addict I searched the web and tried many recipes. Not wanting those with condensed milk I was able to cut the selection right down. And THEN I found your Homemade Vanilla Ice-Cream. Not having an ice-cream maker I had to use the instructions from other recipes and then added a pinch of salt (apparently that helps with the freezing!?) and 1 heaping Tbs of Custard Powder. I also added another egg yolk. And this is absolutely perfect. I never want to go back to bought ice-cream .... in fact I find it very disappointing. So thanks for your recipe - it is an absolute hit!" by Celia on Home Page
