Homemade Mayonnaise

Mayonnaise is a dip that everyone likes in their burgers with their fries, and even in some sandwiches, but the store-bought versions generally don't taste that well. We've got a perfect mayonnaise recipe for you all today that gets ready in just 10 minutes.


What is Mayonnaise?

The sauce or dressing known as mayonnaise, or simply "mayo," is a thick, cold, and creamy one that is frequently used on sandwiches, hamburgers, mixed salads, and French fries. In addition, it serves as the foundation for many other sauces, including tartar sauce. An emulsion of oil, egg yolk, and an acid (usually vinegar or lemon juice) makes up mayonnaise; there are several variations that incorporate additional flavourings. The hue ranges from nearly white to pale yellow, and the consistency is variable, ranging from a thin cream to a thick gel.


How to make Homemade Mayonnaise 

  1. In a bowl separate an egg yolk, add the mustard and lemon juice into the bowl. Mix everything to a cohesive mixture.   
  2. Add the oil into the bowl very slowly in a thin stream using a squeeze bottle or a piping bag, while making sure to continuously whisk it. 
  3. Keep on adding the oil till the mayonnaise turns thick and the oil is finished. Season the thick and creamy mayonnaise with salt and pepper.  
  4. Store the mayonnaise covered in a refrigerator.  

Expert Tips

  1. Make sure to keep whisking the whole time.
  2. Do not add the oil all at once, or the mayonnaise will split.
  3. If the mayonnaise seems too thick add a little water to thin it out.
