 Homemade Mustard Garlic Mayonnaise Recipe

  • 3 Large Free-Ranged Egg Yolks
  • 1/4 cup Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/4 cup Brown Rice Syrup (optional)
  • 3 – 4 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 4 – 5 Tbsp Whole Grain Mustard powder (you can add more or less to your taste)
  • 2 Tbsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 cups Olive Oil (1st press, cold press, extra virgin)

Get Busy.

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer add the egg yolks, lemon juice, brown rice syrup, minced garlic, mustard, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Whip it. Whip it good. Seriously, use a machine to blend these together, your arms will burn wielding a whisk.
  2. Turn your mixer on high and pour the oil into the bowl in the thinnest stream possible. Yes, it will dribble down the side of your measuring cup, it will get on your counter, you’ll pour it in cautiously slowly and sometimes too fast. The mayonnaise will survive as long as you try to pour it in slowly. This is how emulsification works.
  3. When you’ve finished pouring in the oil, let it whip for another minute and then turn off the mixer. The mayonnaise should be pale yellow, flecked with mustard grains and thick (but not as thick as it will be after a stay in your fridge to chill). You’re finished.

This recipe can be used as a great dip for Shrimp, Crabmeat, Duck, Brussels Sprouts, Jimcama, Radishes, avocado & sprouts, etc, etc, etc.

I used this recipe for making Small Roasted Village Potatoes ~

Just wash & clean small potatoes, place in oven tray with a little olive oil, sea salt, & fresh rosemary. Bake @ 375 ° for 40 minutes or until golden brown, let it cool slightly and than add Mustard Garlic Mayonnaise mic to the potatoes. Yum!
