Recipe: Baconnaise... Bacon Mayonnaise From Scratch
Baconnaise... Bacon Mayonnaise From Scratch
12 oz of oil
Juice of 1 lemon
A pack of delicious bacon
The most important ingredient in mayonnaise its the oil so to make our
Baconnaise we have to get as much bacon oil/fat as possible so we can get
that bacon flavor.
Fry you bacon preferably on a Forman grill or and oven where you are gonna
be able to separate the drippings from the bacon and that the bacon its not
gonna stay frying in the oil that comes out. The reason for this is that
the first thing that comes out of the bacon its mainly water, juices and
fat and if you get any water in the mayonnaise it wont come out right.
After you see that water stops dripping and you can see only oil dripping
remove the tray and collect the pure oil in a new tray.
Let the bacon fry until looks crispy and dry and most of the oil is out.
The bacon oil that you collected you are going to strain it to get the
impurities out and then mix it with regular oil until you have 12oz of oil
Save the bacon to add to the Baconnaise if you want crunchy Baconnaise.
Put the two full eggs in the blender and start it at the slowest speed.
Pour the oil in a small thin string very slowly into the eggs as they get
As it starts to thicken and you put all the oil add salt pepper and the
lemon juice and the stop the blender.
This process should not take more than 1 minute if you blend it for too
long it will mess up and don't stop and star the blender once you added the
oil or it will also mess up.
Take out the Baconnaise from the blender and put it into a container.
If you want crunchy Baconnaise cut the fried bacon in small pieces and add
it to it if not just leave it like that and you have creamy Baconnaise.
Enjoy, now you can take your bacon everywhere and put it on anything you
