Whole Egg Sesame Mayonnaise

Rated as 1.67 out of 5 Stars

"Sesame whispers sweet-nothings in your ear with this light and tangy adaptation. This recipe avoids vegetable oil while incorporating the complete egg to deliver a healthy-choice alternative spread. Fresh mayo should be used within 2 weeks or less. Always serve chilled. Put on sandwiches, in a light crab salad, or use in deviled eggs with a spice injection. Use a pasteurized egg, if possible."

  • Cook's Notes
  • Consider adding a dash of onion powder, garlic powder, white pepper, or dill.
  • Turn into a dressing with more herbs, cayenne, or your favorite hot sauce.
  • Olive oil is not recommended - even extra virgin, or extra-extra-really virgin. Mild sesame flavor should be detectable.
  • Alternatively, an immersion blender may be used directly in the wide-mouthed jar that will store the finished product. Begin fully immersed to achieve emulsification, then raise and lower slowly to complete the blend.
  • Nutrition:
  • This recipe contains raw egg. We recommend that pregnant women, young children, the elderly, and the infirm do not consume raw egg. Learn more about egg safety from our article, Making Your Eggs Safe.
