Homemade mayonnaise recipe

Author: Petro


  • 1 hard boiled egg yolk
  • 1 raw egg yolk
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • 8 1/2 oz - 250 ml vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • salt to taste

You will also need:

  • wood spatula
  • hand mixer
  • mixing bowl
  • vegetable grater


  • Grate the boiled egg yolk.
  • In a mixing bowl, using a wooden spatula mix the boiled egg with the raw egg until you get a paste.
  • Add a couple drops lemon juice, 2-3 drops oil and mix by hand until fully incorporated.
  • Add a few more drops of lemon juice and about a tablespoon oil and continue mixing by hand until the mixture doubles in size.
  • At this point you can switch to a hand mixer but continue adding lemon juice and oil a little at a time until both are done.
  • Finish with a teaspoon of mustard and salt to taste and mix until fully incorporated.
  • Tip: At any point, if the mayonnaise separates after the oil is added and the mixture has broken, add an egg yolk and 1 teaspoon tepid water then continue mixing by hand. Or add the mustard, a little at a time, until the mixture is back to normal. Using the lemon juice from the very start should prevent this from happening but accidents do occur sometimes.
