It all started with my Mama's gumbo recipe!

Homemade Mayonnaise With A Creole Kick

Homemade Mayonnaise With A Creole Kick

homemade mayonnaiseAh, Fresh!

That’s what I think about the taste of homemade mayonnaise. I not only think it I experience it every time I add 5 simple ingredients to a pint-sized mason jar and commence to blend it with an immersion blender.

I did try my hand with a bowl and a whisk, but I thought my arm was going to fall off, so I’m sticking with the blender. No second thoughts about that one!

Now, Let’s Kick It Up A Notch!

A lot of homemade mayonnaise recipe’s call for Dijon mustard and that’s what I started off using on my trek to this divine mayo spread, but I have discovered something more suitable for this Cajun palate. I use a bit of that mustard from my Creole cousins. If you haven’t experienced it yet, you must give it a try.

Homemade Mayonnaise With A Creole Kick

Get this fresh-tasting mayonnaise with an added burst of flavor from a little bit of Creole Mustard in just minutes using only 5 ingredients. It’s easy!

  • Author: Louisiana Woman
  • Prep Time: 5-10 minutes
  • Total Time: 5-10 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cup
  • Category: Sauces
  • Cuisine: French

Ingredients

1 whole egg

3/4 cup canola oil

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 teaspoon Creole Mustard

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions

Immersion Blender Method

Place all ingredients in a wide-mouth pint size mason jar.

Place the immersion blender into the jar and blend all ingredients together into a creamy white mayonnaise.

This takes less than 30 seconds.

Use right away or screw on a lid and store it in the refrigerator.

Food Processor Method

Place egg, lemon juice, mustard and salt into the food processor.

Cover with lid and turn the machine on high.

While the machine is running, drizzle in the oil through the hole at the top of the lid a little at a time at first.

Let the sauce begin to turn white and creamy then continue adding oil but not as slowly as at first.

Make sure the oil is thoroughly mixed into the sauce before turning the machine off.

Store in an airtight glass container and keep in the refrigerator.

Notes

Dijon Mustard can be used in place of the Creole Mustard for a milder sauce that is still fresh and delicious.

Using plain vegetable oil gives minimal flavor, so Canola oil is used for the best tasting mayonnaise.
