Herbed Mayo

Simmie Sinow

This is THE BEST mayo ever!

It also can be very thick -- which may be a blessing for those of you that have issues with runny homemade mayonnaise.

The key to not having to worry about runny mayonnaise is adding some powdered type of spices to it as the extra powder will thicken the mayonnaise up really nice.

These will become your new best friend in seasonings for your  mayonnaise:

1 whole egg, cold right out of the refrigerator
1 egg yolks, cold right out of the refrigerator
1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp dill pickle juice OR 1 tsp lime juice
1 heaping tsp mustard powder
1 Tbsp Trader Joe's "Everything But the Bagel" sesame seasoning **
1 Tbsp Trader Joe's Onion Salt blend **
2 1/3 to 2 1/2 cups oil (I use avocado oil or olive oil)

Note: This mayonnaise WILL be thick! No more fretting about runny mayonnaise.

What I do is "slam" the eggs into the bottom of the jar I'm making this in,  so as to break the yolk.  A fork or knife works just as well, but just isn't as much fun!

Add all the ingredients into your jar, in the order they are listed above. Be sure the oil is the last thing you pour in.

Before beginning to blend with your immersion blender, be 100% sure that the blender head is at the very bottom of your container.   This is critical.

Blend on low until you think your blender head is ready to pull up and LEAVE IT THERE longer.  Trust me on this.

When you think you've blended it a little too much.....give it another 20 seconds.

When it is done, it may not be super smooth, so take a spoon and just mix it up a bit and it will be fine.

You can use this as mayo or as a base for a dip to add some chipotle powder or other seasonings to as a veggie dip that also serves as your fat portion as part of your meal.

** Important Note: If you are using a different recipe that calls for less than 2c of oil, make sure to downsize the amount of the Trader Joe's spices.  Otherwise, you will wind up with mayo that sticks like glue!
