Betty's Better Mayo Recipe

 Betty's Better Mayo Recipe

1 whole egg
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp sugar (I omit)
1/4 tsp salt
dash cayenne pepper ( I also add a dash of paprika)
2 tbsp lemon juice or vinegar
1 cup salad oil (sometimes +1/4 cup if egg is huge)

In your blender (I like a small food chopper instead) put the egg and everything but the oil. Now add 1/4 cup of the oil. Mix for about 5 seconds. Beat on high speed and slowly add the oil in a thin stream. Scrape the sides and give a final whirl.

If the mayo isn't thick enough for you, you can up to 1/4 cup oil until it is. If you add much than that, it gets icky oily.

Of course, you can use this as a base and add various herbs - dill, oregano, etc. You can thin it with a little water, or more lemon juice or sour cream, or milk, or whatever, and make salad dressing.

Adding a bit of madras curry powder makes a delicious dressing.
