Dried morel mushrooms add meaty flavor to this mayonnaise. You can substitute your favorite dried mushrooms, if necessary.

How to Make It

Step 1

Combine lemon juice, mustard, and egg yolks in a medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Gradually add oil, about 1 tablespoon at a time, stirring with a whisk until each addition is incorporated and mixture is thick. Stir in salt and pepper.

Step 2

Combine 1/2 ounce dried morel mushrooms and 1/2 cup boiling water in a small bowl; cover and let stand 15 minutes. Drain mushrooms in a colander over a bowl, reserving solids and liquid. Strain reserved liquid through a fine sieve over a small saucepan; bring liquid to a boil. Cook until reduced to 1 tablespoon (about 5 minutes); cool completely. Finely chop mushrooms. Stir reduced liquid and mushrooms into mayonnaise mixture. Cover and chill at least 4 hours.

Very bland I made this to put on a turkey burger and it did nothing to enhance the flavor. The mushrooms were ust rubbery and tasteless. Not worth the money you spend on the dried mushrooms.
