It is really easy to make and only takes one minute with a blender or mixie. Once you make mayo at home, you’ll never buy it from the store again. Fresh is best!

Recently, I came across this recipe of Chef Gordon Ramsay and was so pleased to share this recipe on my blog. The only difference is that I tried his recipe in my mixie jar instead of a immersion blender.

What Is Mayonnaise?

Mayonnaise is an emulsion of oil and water—two liquids that generally don’t get along. Look at it under a microscope and you’ll see it’s made up of teeny-tiny fat droplets coated in a thin film of emulsifying agents separated by water. 

Because you are attempting to combine two ingredients that really don’t want to be combined, mayonnaise is notoriously difficult to make. Classic technique will have you start by whisking egg yolks, a bit of mustard, and some acid (either lemon juice or vinegar), then slowly, slowly, slowly trickling in a thin stream of oil as you continue to beat rapidly. The idea is to get the oil to disperse itself into tiny droplets as you whisk it. Pour the oil too fast and you end up with a broken, greasy, curdled-looking mess instead of the smooth, rich, creamy sauce of your dreams. You can use an immersion blender or a normal mixie jar for this purpose. But be cautious and follow the procedure discussed below while using a mixie jar.

How to make a gordon ramsay mayonnaise recipe?

Ridiculously easy to make and takes less than 2 minutes in your mixie jar. It tastes amazing and is so much healthier than store-bought.

It is a mix of oil, egg white, and an acid, either vinegar or lemon juice. There are many variants using additional flavorings. The color of mayonnaise varies from near-white to pale yellow, and its texture from a light cream to a thick gel. If you like more spicy you can add a dash of red chili powder or maybe oregano, this totally depends on your taste preference. Mayonnaise is well used in shawarma.

  • Is the raw egg a concern? I’m personally not concerned about the raw egg in this mayonnaise, but it’s a personal choice. If you’re concerned then you can certainly use a pasteurised egg.
  • Refrigerate the mayonnaise. Once you made the mayo, transfer it to a sealed storage container and store in the fridge. It will last up to a week in the fridge. Don’t try to freeze the mayonnaise as the emulsion will break.

Notes
