Simple Homemade Mayonnaise- How to | You've Got Meal!

  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp mustard
  • 250 ml vegetable oil
  • about 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • salt to taste
  1. In a bowl, mix the egg yolk and salt with the mustard and stir it or whisk it  until well combined. Adding the mustard from the beginning prevents the mayo to split. Make sure the egg is room temperature, it is easier to work with it.
  2. Start adding drops of the oil and keep mixing. Add the oil slowly, that is really the only secret. 
  3. Once you have added have of the oil, the mayo should be thicker and you can add the rest of the oil faster, even in a slow, thin stream. Now the mayo should start changing its color and become really thick.
  4. Add the lemon juice, more salt if necessary, incorporate them and keep the mayonnaise in the fridge covered. Never let it sit to much at room temperature.
  5. If the mayonnaise is too thick, you can thin it with a little bit of water. If it is to thin, add some more oil and incorporate it as before.
