Being carnivore, I don't eat many sandwiches that require condiments, but I have missed mayonnaise! All of the store brand mayo's, even the "healthy" ones have ingredients like seed oils and other plant ingredients that I'd rather avoid. This recipe is free from seed oils and icky ingredients. This mayo is creamy like regular may, but has the flavor kick of bacon! If you are a bacon lover, you will love this mayonnaise so be sure to save your bacon fat!
This takes mayo to a whole new level with the flavor of bacon, one of my favorite foods!
Whipping up this recipe is super easy and only requires a handful of ingredients! Just bacon fat, egg yolks, lemon, mustard, salt, and pepper. The main ingredients in this recipe are bacon grease and egg yolks. The egg yolk helps to form an emulsion. An acid like lemon juice or vinegar is added to help keep the emulsion together. It also gives the mayo a zingy flavor. Make sure your bacon grease is in liquid form, but not hot and add it slowly to the egg yolks to keep the emulsion from breaking.

You will need a hand held immersion blender or food processor for this recipe.
4 egg yolks
1 tbsp Dijon mustard - optional
2 tsp lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
salt and pepper to taste (I used 1/4 tsp sea salt)
1 cup liquid bacon grease
Add the egg yolks, mustard, lemon juice, salt and pepper to the immersion blender cup or food processor and blend or pulse to combine.
Very slowly, drizzle the liquid bacon grease into the immersion blender cup or food processor while blending or pulsing. Blend or pulse until the mayo becomes thick. Serve on sandwiches, as a topping, or a dip! Store any left overs in the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature before serving.
