Homemade Bacon-Flavored Mayo - BACONNAISE!

I've made our mayonnaise for a long time but recently got to thinking...  BACON!  Now I almost always make Baconnaise instead!

Ingredients

  • 1 Egg (at room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice (at room temperature)
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ t Mustard Powder
  • ¼ Cup Softened Bacon Grease
  • ¼ Cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (or maybe melted coconut oil instead?)
  • 2 Tablespoons Whey from Yogurt

Instructions

  1. Crack the egg into a wide-mouth canning jar and add the lemon juice. Blend together and let the mixture sit until it gets close to room temperature – about 5-10 minutes.

  2. Add the salt, mustard powder & softened bacon grease to the jar. With an immersion blender at the bottom of the jar start blending, until ingredients are fully blended.

  3. Then in a VERY THIN STREAM and very slowly pour in the olive oil. The ingredients will emulsify about halfway through but keep pouring slowly until all oil is incorporated. This should take about 3-4 minutes total. Finally add in the whey and blend together. Store in the refrigerator.

Recipe Notes

We go through our mayo pretty quickly so I don’t really know how long it will keep, I’ve read that it will keep several weeks but I’ve never had it long enough to test that. Let me know how long your Baconnaise lasts!
