Essential Mayonnaise

Store-bought mayo ingredients read like a chemistry class, when it’s really just the mixing alchemy of eggs, oil and vinegar. The Breville Food Processor emulsifies the mixture into smooth creamy clouds of unadulterated deliciousness. Make a double batch because it ain’t called ‘Essential’ for nothing.

    2 tbsp white wine vinegar

    1½ cups (12 fl oz) vegetable oil

    or any neutral oil


  • 1Carefully assemble the processor with the grey spindle and green S-blade™ in the bowl. Add the egg yolks, vinegar, mustard and salt and process for 1 minute, or until light and airy. Remove the food pusher and while processing, slowly drizzle in the oil until the mixture emulsifies and thickens.
    Tip: If the mayonnaise begins to look slightly split, add a tablespoon of cold water.
  • 2Creamy, dreamy and ready to go. Bake some potatoes, shred some slaw or add crushed garlic for a killer aioli. If you can’t decide, pop your essential mayo into an airtight container…label n’ date and stick in the fridge! It’ll keep for 3 days, but seriously, those egg salad sandwiches are calling.
