One Minute Mayonnaise!

One Minute Mayonnaise!

I used to HATE mayonnaise.

Well to be quite honest I still don’t love it.  I probably use it a few times a month in my tuna salad or a dressing but it’s one thing my Hubby has to have in the fridge.

Like most people he eats it on sandwiches, with broccoli, on burgers etc.  I used to buy an organic one for him and he liked it okay.  However, when I tried my hand at making homemade mayo everyone agreed it was the best ever!   So I thought I’d share just how simple and quick it is to make the popular condiment.

Step one – Gather your supplies.

A room temperature 1 egg, 1 tsp. dijon mustard (with no sugar), 1/2 a lemon, 1/4 tsp. sea salt and 1 cup of avocado oil.  You can also use walnut oil, macadamia oil or a light olive oil.  An immersion blender will be used in this recipe but you can also use a high speed blender. You have to drizzle the oil in slowly so it will take much longer.

Step 2 – Place all your ingredients into a mason jar.

Step 3 – Stick the immersion blender into the jar and blend at the highest speed.

Lift the immersion blender up and down while mixing a few times and watch as the emulsification occurs!

In less than a minute you’ll have homemade, non-GMO, Organic if you choose, mayo!

Store it in the fridge for up to a week and use on sandwiches, in dressings, salads, etc.!

QUESTIONS – 

  • Mayo, yay or nay?  
  • Have you made mayo before?  
  • What’s a food you used to dislike until you made it yourself?

      Hi Marshall! Ooops, that would have helped if I had included that 🙂 1 egg, 1 tsp. dijon mustard, juice from 1/2 a lemon and 3/4 cup of avocado oil. Hope you enjoy!

  2. I can’t stand mayo! My husband on the other hand, is very similar to yours. Can’t live without it. I will have to give this recipe a try this week & see what he thinks. I’m actually pretty excited myself to see how it turns out 🙂

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      I shocked myself when I tried it and actually didn’t gag. Ha! I used to despise it and couldn’t even open a jar without getting a little nauseous. But this one is actually pretty good!

  3. I don’t like mayo either so this is genius!!! Thanks for sharing!

  4. I used to hate mayo too, but my hubby introduced it to me and now I love it. Thanks for sharing this recipe! Totally going to have to try it!!

  5. I’m slightly embarrassed to say that I love mayo. This recipe looks great! I’ve never made it myself, but now I have a reason to 🙂 thanks!

    • Giselle Schroer says:

      No need to be embarrassed. To each their own 🙂 Yes, definitely try making it. So easy and it’s so much better than the store bought ones!

  6. I used to hate mayo too! But now I like it mixed with pesto, yum!!

    I tried making homemade mayo as well, but using a whisk was quite a workout. I gotta try that immersion blender that’s a life saver!

  7. I still hate mayo! But this looks super easy to make!

  8. I hate mayo but will make it for some recipes. I just feel like it’s not worth the trouble. I know with the immersion blender it’s easier but avocado oil is so expensive.
