Homemade Mayonnaise

Make a small batch or a large one. Flavoring this mayonnaise is easy too, use your own taste as a guide to have a unique mayonnaise. Using a food processor requires no special dexterity compared to the traditional method of whisking.



  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon Dijon-style mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon honey, optional
  • 1½ cup (360 ml) vegetable oil, or smiliar neutral-flavored oil
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt, optional
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Place egg yolks, lemon juice, Dijon, honey, salt and pepper into the Food Processor Work Bowl fitted with the Multi-Use Blade.
  2. Start the machine and allow ingredients to process for 10-15 seconds. Then, add the oil through the inside of the Small Food Pusher (there is a small emulsion hole that allows oil to flow slowly into the bowl.) Once all of the oil has been incorporated, allow to process for an additional 5 seconds.

Chef's Notes

For some flavoring options, try adding ½ an avocado, 4-6 cloves of roasted garlic, or 1-2 tablespoons of hot sauce or harissa. *Alternatively, date syrup cam be used to sweeten if honey isn't desired.
