Whole Egg Homemade Mayonnaise

Back to basics with this easy mayonnaise recipe. Make it your own by adding herbs, seasonings, or even some Old Bay.


1 large egg

1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice or white wine vinegar

1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/2 cup olive oil

1/2 cup vegetable, canola, or a neutral tasting oil

Using an immersion blender or hand mixer, blend together the egg, lemon juice, mustard, and sea salt, mixing until combined. Very slowly, drop by drop, start adding the oil. Once the mixture starts to emulsify and turn creamy you can slowly add the oil in a thin and steady stream. Blend until thick and creamy.
