  • Bacon Mayo Recipe:



    Bacon Mayonnaise

    Makes about 1/2 cup


    Ingredients

    1 egg yolk

    3/4 teaspoon Dijon mustard

    1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juiceSea salt and freshly ground pepper

    1/2 cup liquid bacon fat


    Method

    Combine the egg yolk, mustard and lemon juice in the small bowl of a food processor or in a blender and process to mix. Season with salt and pepper.

    Have the bacon fat liquid, but not hot. With the machine running, gradually the bacon fat until the mixture starts to stiffen and emulsify, about 2 minutes. Once it starts to emulsify, you can add the fat more quickly. If the mayonnaise is too thick, just blend in a bit of cream, or coconut milk would work too I'm sure.


    So many applications for this. It's good all by itself, on salmon, for egg salad, chicken salad etc... as a salad dressing it's the bomb. I especially love to use it as a base for cesear salad, and for a blt salad. mmmmmmmmmmmmmm...

        I found this the other day, and it seems to add on to this recipe. This guy tried making mayo with various types of animal fat. His conclusion was that the texture is better if you use some olive oil along with the animal fat, but you can modify it however you like.

                Well, I just made bacon mayo following the recipe above. I used an immersion blender and it worked perfectly. The texture is very smooth. My question: now what? I can think of adding it to chicken salad, egg salad, and deviled eggs, and after that I draw a blank. What else can I use it for? The idea of using it as salad dressing kind of grosses me out; when I tasted it plain it was like eating pure bacon grease. Then again, I've hardly ever eaten regular mayo, which also kind of grosses me out. Any suggestions?

                    I don't think it's very safe to keep it for longer than a week, although I've been eating my egg salad for almost two weeks now.

                    Actually, I tried the recipe from the second ling where the guy experimented with a few animal fat types. I also mixed bacon fat with some olive oil but I just can't stand olive oil taste in my mayo. Also, my mayo would not imulsify. It separated pretty quickly but I still used it in my egg salad.

                      Annika, what about cesear salad?!? Add 1 lemons worth of juice, 1 tsp worchestershire sauce, 1 tbsp anchovie paste, 2 cloves of garlic, 1 tbsp of onion and 1/4 cup or more of parmesan cheese and blend. I then usually add a couple tbsp of sour cream and a drizzle of heavy cream until it's the consistancy I like. If you aren't big on dairy, go with coconut milk! Then serve on greens (I usually do a mix of romaine and baby spinach) I cut up bacon really small and cook it up and serve instead of croutons! Yum!


                      Then I use the left over dressing for BLT or club salad. Add tomato for blt, and chicken/turkey for the club. mmmmmmmmmmmmm... I could drink the stuff. *blush*

                          Earthmomma, as always, you are my hero. I was having the same issue - I was so gung-ho to make the darn stuff once I had it I just sort of looked at it like, "What next?!" But my various oil-&-vinegar dressings just suck outright so a chance to put something creamy on my mixed greens is AWESOME. THANK YOU.

                              I googled the earth for a bacon mayo recipe and what I found was a consensus that saturated fats won't emulsify unless you mix a substantial amount of unsaturated fats with them. So you had success with the mayo not "breaking"? I'm praying the answer is yes!!!

                              Any secrets?
