Super easy

Basic Mayonnaise


For 1 Batch(es)


  • 3 egg yolks
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 4 cups sunflower oil (as needed)
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Basic Mayonnaise Directions

  1. To make mayonnaise the easy way, simply place the egg yolks, lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper into a food processor and slowly incorporate the oil until it reaches the desired consistency. If you’re old-school or a purist, though, use a mixing bowl and a whisk. Just know that you might end up with forearms like Popeye. Mayonnaise keeps for about 2 weeks refrigerated.
