I thought I really knew this prior to Whole30, but now I definitely know: homemade is ALWAYS better. It just is. This one minute mayo is no exception and when it takes a minute or less of cook time, how can you not make it at home? Not only will you be saving time and serious money (I’ll do a little calculation for you down below), but mayo will become the base of so many tasty recipes! I have made some awesome spicy mayo with this stuff and then ate it with french fries and used it for a sushi burrito.

I really love this one minute mayo as a base for other sauces. I have made a garlic sauces and spicy mayos galore! My favorite spicy mayo option is to combine 1 TBSP of this homemade may with 1 tsp of my Whole30 Chile Garlic Sauce. That combo with french fries is heaven.
Let’s talk about cost for a minute. I can get a pack of pasture raised eggs (the most expensive I buy) for $5.99 for a dozen so thats $0.50 for the egg, about $2 for the oil, $0.25 for the lemon and negligible cost for the spices, but we will call it $01.0. That’s $2.85!! The same amount in a store bought container is as much as $9 for a Whole30 compliant mayo!!
To make this mayo you will only need two pieces of kitchen equipment – a jar or cup to make the mayo in and an immersion blender. I like to use wide mouth mason jars for blending because everything stays inside and I don’t have a mess of oil splatter. I can also store them in it when I am done. If your mayo is thicker than you’d like, you can add some vinegar and blend more to thin it. If it is too thin for whatever reason just slowly add a little more light olive oil. Using light oil in this recipe is crucial. You can use light olive oil or avocado oil, but please do not use extra virgin olive oil for this recipe.
