Let the egg come to room temp if you have time, or if you've been having trouble. Also add a little salt. Both help the emulsion process. You can then thin it down by adding more oil or water
This is the best mayonnaise ever. I actually made the first batch with two yolks and it was a bit too thick for my taste. I then made a second batch with one whole egg and that was perfect. Added salt to both batches and ended up blending the two together. Thanks for posting an easy recipe and the great instructions!
This is good .. I used 2 egg yolks, but I have a lot of mayo left over so I think I will make half the recipe next time .. thank you .. UPDATE: This tasted better the next day!
This was perfect! My food processor doesn't have a hole in the pusher so I prizzled the first 1/4 cup in a Table spoon at a time. I was also happy that you suggested adding parsley, it was subtle but yummy. Green mayo will be perfect in potato salad for St. Patty's day!
Excellent recipe! I like the options presented for the oils and the instructions are easy to follow. My favorite oil to add is grape seed oil. It makes for a light mayonnaise and a light taste. I use a combination of grape seed, olive oil and canola oil.
It worked great with the real egg. I tried the Egg Beater version (yes, minus the lemon juice) and it didn't work out at all. In fairness, I think I went too fast. If I try it again with Egg Beaters, I will only do egg beater and oil process. No mustard until later. I did use the slop to replace oil and eggs in a bread recipe plus flaxseed meal so that wasn't a total waste. (usually you use 1 TB flaxseed meal to 3 TB hot water). BTW It makes the bread very crusty.
Excellent & delicious recipe for mayo. Very well written & super easy. We loved it with our fresh from the garden cucumbers & tomatoes. This recipe will become a staple in my kitchen!
as an accidental good cook, this mayo recipe came out great the first time, the second time and the third time! then i lost the recipe, tried others and none came out nearly as well. Thankfully i searched my history and found yours again.
Unfortunately, this didn't work for me. I used 1 egg yolk, 1 tbs dijon, 1 tbs vinegar and 1 1/4 olive oil and followed the directions carefully. Am I doing something wrong?
first time mayo for me, its fantastic and i wont buy mayo again.I used 1 med egg and a yolk from our chickens and cider apple vinegar,then added chives .thanks i,ll be passing it on.
