MAKE YOUR OWN MAYONNAISE
Have you read the labels on a mayo jar recently? Do you really need all those preservatives and extra fats they put in your body?
How about making your own? It’s quick and easy and all you need is a mixer, a bowl and 3 ingredients. Then you can make some super - duper deviled eggs, potato salad, eggplant salad, salade du boef or just add it to your favorite roast beef sandwich and see the difference. Your taste buds and curves will thank you for it. :)
- Olive or vegetable oil
- 1-2 egg yolks (depending of the amount of mayo you want)
- 1 tablespoon of mustard
- 1-2 teaspoons of lemon juice after all done, not during mixing
Separate the egg yolk/s in a mixing bowl, add the mustard and use the mixer on a high setting slowly adding the oil. The secret to a successful home made mayo is to add the oil extremely slowly or else it will collapse. Your mayo should become hard so when turned upside down it would slide out in one piece. Do not add any lemon juice to it. You can do that later when mixing it in your favorite salads. A bit of salt is OK.
Now, wasn’t that easy?
