When you’re out of mayonnaise, blend a batch of this Homemade Mayo in no time at all.

When you're out of mayonnaise, blend a batch of this Homemade Mayo in no time at all.I had a plan.  Today we were going to have Pressed French bread sandwiches.  I went to the store to get all my ingredients.  When I arrived back home I discovered that we had run out of mayo.  I am a mayo kind of girl and absolutely can’t have a sandwich without it. There was no way in hell I was going back out to buy a jar. I did the next best thing.  I made my own.

When you're out of mayonnaise, blend a batch of this Homemade Mayo in no time at all.I actually tried making homemade mayo three times before I got it right.  It’s all about how slowly you drizzle the oil.  Be patient, take your time, and you too will have homemade mayo.  I discovered that it doesn’t last very long in the fridge.  One day max, so make sure you don’t make a lot unless you plan on using it all in two days.  I tried it with room temperature ingredients as well as right out of the fridge.  I didn’t notice any significant difference in the outcome.  And besides, who has time to wait for the egg to come to room temperature anyway.

Next time I plan on adding some garlic salt or garlic paste for an amazing garlic mayo.

Sorry, no photos of the sandwiches.  By the time I made the mayo and photographed it, all the sandwiches disappeared.
