Prep time
Total time
Serves: 16
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 3 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup liquid bacon fat (not too hot)
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard (to help emulsify)
  1. Place the yolks in a small food processor with 1 tsp lemon juice and mix until well combined.
  2. Turn the food processor on low and slowly drizzle the liquid bacon fat into the yolk mixture, drop by drop in the beginning. If you put too much oil at once, it will separate.
  3. As you add more bacon fat, the emulsion will form and the mayonnaise will start to thicken and you can pour the fat in faster.
  4. Once you add all the bacon fat, mustard and add the rest of the lemon juice and taste your creation. Add salt to taste if needed.
  5. Store in the refrigerator.
