Mayo recipe

What is your favorite homemade mayo recipe?

I just got a Vitamix (awwwwesome!) and today wanted a vegetable oil free mayo i made with bacon grease and butter

3 large eggs (either pastured or pasteurized for raw safety)
1/4 ACV
2tsp dry mustard or to taste
1tsp salt or to taste
1 1/2 c combined melted bacon grease and butter (1 stick butter into 1c hot bacon drippings)

Whip bacon grease and butter if any bacon bits are in the grease; pour into measuring cup. Whip eggs, ACV, and mustard on high, quickly drizzle in greaae until thick mayo forms.

It is jelly like once cooled in the fridge but spreadable and stir-able for tuna salad. You can loosen with a few tablespoons of oil or even cream if needed. I made ranch dressing and onion bacon dip out of mine for dipping veggies. It fills me up fast! Thick and dairy free.

I don't know if you are planning to use your Vitamix to make mayo. But I didn't have luck using it that way. I think an immersion blender or food processor works better.

yes, I used the Vitamix, and it worked perfectly. I had to drizzle the oil in a lot faster than I thought as it thickened almost immediately. My sister uses the immersion blender (starting at the bottom and lifting it slowly up), but I don't own one of those. I've never tried my KitchenAid blender or my food processor.

Do you have a recipe you like best?

I must have drizzled the oil too slowly. The mayo started to heat up from the powerful Vitamix motor and I ended up with mayo soup.

yes, I think the recipe in the included cookbook said no more than 90 seconds to avoid overheating it. I think mine took about 30! But, I started with hot grease and melted butter, and it still worked GREAT.

I've been making our mayo for a long time now... So easy.

2 eggs
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp dry mustard powder
Couple dashes paprika
2 cups extra light tasting olive oil

In food processor or blender:
Add eggs thru paprika + 1/4 cup oil and blend about 15 seconds then drizzle in the rest of the oil.

With immersion blender add all ingredients (eggs first, oil last) then blend starting at the bottom and pull blender up slowly. Move blender up and down until - ta days - it's mayonnaise!

Let sit overnight in the fridge for best taste.

I made some this weekend out of walnut oil. It was pretty good, but a little too vinegary. I made it into ranch dressing and it is yummy now.
