Mayonnaise

Photo: Randy Mayor; Styling: Leigh Ann Ross

The key to creamy homemade mayo is to add just a few drops of oil at a time to the egg mixture, then pour in a slow, thin drizzle—whisking constantly—to ensure the mayonnaise emulsifies (blends smoothly). Use plain as a sandwich spread, or experiment with added flavorings such as hot sauce or roasted garlic.
