What you will need for this easy homemade mayonnaise:


  1. Combine the egg yolk, lemon juice, vinegar, mustard and salt in a food processor or bowl.
  2. Mix until blended and bright yellow.
  3. Use the drip function on the food processor to slowly add the olive oil while the processor is mixing or add 1/4 tsp. at a time while whisking by hand.
  4. Slowly add the bacon fat (you may have to warm it  in order to pour it in) in the same way as the olive oil.
  5. Mix until you get the consistency you want – it will not be as solidified as store-bought mayo, but it will be spreadable once it spends some time in the fridge.
  6. Enjoy!
