video: Easy family-size mayonnaise recipe by Tracie

Home made mayonnaise, Thermomix recipe

A quick little video recommended for all who are new to Thermomix. Learn to make a family-sized batch of home-made mayo and you’ll feel like you’ve won the lotto.  Mayonnaise is so versatile and useful, and it’s even better when we can control what’s in the jar. Let’s watch and cook-along with Australia’s Tracie (aka TracieD.)  as she adapts her family’s favourite mayo recipe for Thermomix. With a family of six to feed, TracieD uses a lot of mayo, but remember — this super-sized recipe is also perfect for dividing up into smaller jars and gifting — especially when personalized with the addition of your own special herbs and flavours. (Tip: think garlic, chili, curry etc.)

ps – I tested Tracie’s recipe  and it works great — even with all my substitutions. The mayo in the photo at top of this page is more yellow than Tracie’s because I substituted olive oil for part of the vegetable oil. I used free-range organic eggs with deeply golden yolks, home-made Dijon-style mustard and lemon juice instead of vinegar. Also added the lemon zest at the last minute. Zippy and just perfect on a toasted tomato sandwich made with Thermomix bread ;-)

    Wow… that’s A LOT of mayonnaise…
    I love how new and shiny the measuring cup looks in the video, mine’s a bit worn out.

    Thanks so much for sharing my video Helene!! We had a restaurant for 7 years and that is why the quantities are so huge. Having said that my boys eat that much mayo in a week especially my 19 year old who has it on EVERYTHING! This mayo is also great if you throw in a bunch of herbs such as dill, Italian (flat leaf) parsley & Chives. After you have made the mayo separate a portion and mix in the herbs with your special Super Spatula!!!

    Its great that you mention dividing it up. I also divide it up and drop it off to friends as gifts. We had a loyal following of customers who used to come in especially for that mayo on their BLT’s and I have remained good friends with some of them even though it has been 2 years since I had that business.

    YUM!! We love mayo too – I’ve got to try this recipe! I always add herbs, garlic & honey to mine… mmmm! Thanks for sharing, Helene and Tracie! xx

    Thanks Jo, and thanks again TracieD — for me too, it’s all about what is added to the basic mayo to make it special. That said, we all need a good reliable mayo recipe that works for us. I know some people have more luck than others when using the recipe on this page, so it’s nice to have options. It’s especially nice to have a reliable large batch recipe for when needed. And I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Jo uses this recipe when she opens her Thermo Bistro in the Tablelands ;-)

    Fantastic! I love mayo and usually make double the quantity, but this recipe sounds better than just doubling the normal one.
    Will try ASAP!

    Hi there :) looks great. How long will it keep for? And can grape seed oils be used?
    Thanks x
