    Commercial mayonnaise is cheap, but have you ever tasted the real thing? It's not hard to make in the food processor.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 12 

    • 1 egg
    • 1 clove garlic, crushed
    • juice of 1/2 large lemon (about 1 tablespoon)
    • 1 teaspoon prepared mustard or dry mustard
    • 3/4 cup olive oil
    • salt and pepper to taste

    Directions
    Preparation:5min  ›  Ready in:5min 

    1. Combine the egg, garlic, lemon juice and mustard in the container of a blender or food processor.
    2. Blend until smooth, then blend on low speed while pouring in the oil in a fine stream as the mixture emulsifies and thickens.
