There is only one possible way to make mayonnaise better ... make it with bacon grease! It makes the perfect addition to your low carb sandwiches, and lettuce wraps or any place where you would use regular mayo.
Homemade mayonnaise is so easy to make, but it does take a little bit of technique. Be sure to check out the video to see how it's done.
I use an immersion blender, which I think makes this super easy - but you could also use a regular blender or a food processor.
The main thing to know is that you have to add the bacon grease in very slowly while continuously blending. If you add it too fast, or stop blending - you will end up with a gloopy mess.
I usually save my bacon grease every time that I make bacon, then when I get about 1 cup, I make this mayo. If you don't have a full cup of bacon grease you can mix in avocado or olive oil to make up the difference.
This bacon mayo will keep in a tightly sealed container in the fridge for up to a month. It will get slightly hardened in the refrigerator, but softens pretty quickly at room temp.
Be sure to check out these other great recipes:
- In a tall cup or jar, add the egg yolks and lemon juice. Use an immersion blender to combine them.
- VERY SLOWLY drizzle the bacon grease in with the egg yolks and lemon juice, continuing to blend the entire time. As you are blending in the bacon grease, the mixture should begin to thicken and turn a light color.
