Homemade Mayonnaise

Homemade Mayonnaise

You don’t need to be a super chef to make mayonnaise, but there is a technique! I use the hand blender and the tall cup that comes with it to make an amazing creamy mayonnaise.

I put all the ingredients into the cup except for the oil. I pour in the oil slowly while the blender is running and I move it upwards while the mayonnaise starts to become fluffy and creamy. It makes about 1 cup.

Cover and put it in the fridge until you are ready to serve it. You can always keep it in the fridge for up to 5 days. Enjoy!!

: easy & tricky


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 3/4 cup Canola oil
  • Step 1 If the egg was chilled, place it in a bowl and add hot tap water to cover it. Let it sit for 5 minutes. This will take the chill off it.
  • Step 2 In a tall cup in which the hand blender can reach the bottom, crack the egg, add the lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper.
  • Step 3 Pour the oil in a glass measuring cup and while the blender is running, add the oil in a slow, steady steam and continue the process until the mayonnaise thickens.
  • Step 4 The texture will become noticeably creamier. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
