Basic Mayonnaise

Posted by

I love this recipe because, like all basic recipes, you can make it your own. When I make this normally I also add a ton of garlic a lemon juice.

You will need either a blender, preferably a food processor. When you see how easy this is, you’ll wonder why you ever bought mayo.

Basic Mayonnaise




  • 1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar or apple cider vinegar or a sharp citrus like lemon, lime
  • 1 cup vegetable oil (Or any other light oil)


  1. Put all ingredients, except the oil, into a food processor and turn it on.
  2. Drizzle vegetable oil as the food processor is on.
  3. Done!


  • You’ll be tempted to use olive oil. Don’t use heavy olive oil, use light olive oil. Heavy gives the mayo a weird taste
  • This is good for 2 weeks in the fridge
