I found this recipe for homemade Miracle Whip in the local paper. Miracle Whip is not available where I live, so it's nice to have a jar of this in the fridge.

This is a very good base recipe for Miracle Whip. I found when I compared it side by side with Miracle Whip, it was not as sweet. So, I added another tablespoon of powdered sugar and that did the trick. Also, Miracle Whip has paprika and garlic in it. So, I added 1/4 teaspoon of paprika and 1/4 teaspoon of garlic. Tastes just like Miracle Whip to me!!! Good stuff!!
- 2 egg yolks
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice or 3 tablespoons vinegar
- 1 1⁄2 cups oil
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons flour or 1 1⁄2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
