Mayonnaise

 In Eggs, Recipes

Yield: 1 cup

Ingredient                                          Amount

Yolk                                                          from 2 eggs

Lemon Juice                                          1 ½ Tbsp

Mustard, Dijon                                     1 tsp

Hot Sauce                                              dash or to taste

Olive Oil                                                ½ cup

Vegetable or Canola Oil                      1/3 cup

Salt                                                          to taste

Method:

  1. Whisk together yolk, lemon juice, mustard, and hot sauce in a bowl. Combine oils and add the oil very slowly (a few drops at a time) to yolk mixture, whisking constantly until all oil is incorporated and mixture is emulsified. (If mixture separates, stop adding oil and continue whisking until mixture comes together, then resume adding oil.)
  2. Season with salt. If the mayo is too thick, whisk in 1 or 2 drops of water. Chill, covered, until ready to use.

Notes:

  • You can also add garlic paste (minced garlic mashed with salt) to make the mayo into aioli.
  • You can also add flavors such as chipotle peppers, sriracha, or chopped herbs to create a vibrant spread.
