I honestly do not know what I would do if Mayonnaise did not exist. It is one of the most commonly used condiments in my house as we are really big sandwich lovers.

I love that we can make our own at home because it is really super easy to blend up and you can use it right after it’s done, no chilling or waiting required.

That is of course unless you want your Homemade Mayonnaise cold, which in my preference it doesn’t matter if I use it right after I make it or after I place it in my refrigerator.

This is one recipe we have been making for years and it has never failed us. Like I said above you can use it in various different things that call for Mayonnaise.

Not just sandwiches, but salads, you can use it to make different dressings, etc. But this basic recipe will really get you started on a great easy condiment that you will want to use.

Since this is a basic recipe you can absolutely build from it to add some different flavors if you like, spice it up, sweeten it. Whatever you like you can absolutely do.

Some of our other favorite sauces, dressings or condiment recipes include Easy Homemade Tartar Sauce, Spicy Garlic Salad Dressing and Creamy Garlic Salad Dressing.

HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE MAYONNAISE:

  1. To make this mayonnaise, you’ll need an immersion blender and a tight container for the mix to achieve an emulsion.
  2. Place the egg, dijon, lemon juice, and salt in the container. You’ll start pulsing the blender and simultaneously streaming in the oil. Do it slowly to give time for the emulsion to appear. Lift the blender softly to let some air inside the mix.
  3. The egg, the oil, and the mustard will help each other for this smooth mayonnaise to work. Blend for a few minutes, and you’ll notice how the mix starts to emulsify and thicken. 
  4. If the mayo is still liquid after a couple of minutes, add more oil and blend a bit more.

How much easier can this get! This is why we love making our own at home, it is just super simple and so quick on time that we cant get enough.

Plus we like the flavor of the Homemade Mayonnaise better than the store bought stuff by far. But I kinda always love homemade better than a lot of stuff anyways. 

So trust me when I say that this is a tried and true loved recipe that we make a lot! 

IS HOMEMADE MAYONNAISE SAFE:

Yes it is, I know some people see raw egg and think that it is not safe. According to the USDA homemade mayonnaise can be safely made if raw, in-shell pasteurized eggs or pasteurized egg products are used. 

Those are the same eggs that you would buy from any normal store, so there is nothing to worry about when making this recipe at all as long as you keep it refrigerated after you make it.

HOW TO STORE:

This Homemade Mayonnaise recipe needs to be refrigerated since of the products that it uses. This should be stored in an airtight container and will keep for up to one week.

TIPS AND TRICKS:

  • If you’re an olive oil lover, you could replace ⅓ cup of canola oil with ⅓ cup of olive oil.
  • Make an aioli mayonnaise by adding one clove minced garlic and blend it from the beginning.
  • You can also mix in any other flavors such as hot sauce, ranch, etc to make a flavored mayonnaise as well.
  • Double this recipe to make more if you use a lot of mayonnaise or are planning to make a salad.
