Recipe type: Sauces and Condiments
Cuisine: European
Serves: 2 Cups
  • 2 egg yolks, room temperature
  • 1 egg white (optional), room temperature
  • 1½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice, room temperature
  • 1½ cup of canola, sunflower or vegetable oil
  • salt to taste
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard (optional), room temperature
  1. In the bowl of a stand up mixer, using the whisk attachment, combine the egg yolks, egg white, lemon juice and dijon mustard (if using) and blend until the mixture becomes uniform and yellow, about 30 seconds.
  2. Turn up the speed on the mixer to high (8-10), add oil very slowly, I mean painfully slowly, in a thin stream to the yolk mixture, until a mayonnaise begins to form, then you can pour the oil in a slow steady stream until mayonnaise is thick, about 8 -10 minutes.
  3. Store in an airtight container and use within four days. Enjoy!
