5 minute aioli in a food processor
Ok, so I know I said that the next post will be a deviled eggs recipe, but it just needs a bit more tweaking before I am satisfied with it. My idea was to make it with this quick, homemade 5 minute aioli sauce. But when I was making the mixture I thought (hmmm is it worth making all of that aioli if I am only going to use 1-2 spoonfuls of it in the recipe?). One one hand, it’s so quick and easy, but on the other hand, you’ll have a batch of aioli which may or may not be useful to you.
I figured that since this aioli is a post in itself. And honestly, if you have a food processor, this recipe shouldn’t take any longer than 5 minutes. Then, I may as well post this first, then if you want to make the deviled eggs with homemade mayo, this recipe will always be here for you to use.
You will notice that I use 1 whole egg to make this aioli instead of just egg yolks. Yes, that’s right, some of you may be thinking “waahhhh?”, but having the whites makes the mayonnaise a lot lighter and creamier in my opinion. If you want to have a richer mayonnaise, then you are more than welcome to only use egg yolks. The more egg yolks you use, the richer the mayo will be. But I quite like just simply cracking in an egg because you don’t have to go through the fuss of figuring out what to do with the whites later on.
Now, if you ever make mayonnaise, and you think that you need to add another egg or egg yolk because you’re afraid that you are about to add too much oil for the egg to handle. Don’t worry, that won’t be the case. 1 egg yolk can basically take an infinite amount of oil. 99.9% of the time, the only real reason mayonnaise splits is because too much oil is added at once. However, to be honest, I have made homemade mayo so many times and I don’t think I have ever split it. And when you use a food processor, this really shouldn’t be an issue. The blades spin super fast, making the emulsification process so much easier.
Thanks so much for tagging along. You guys are the best!! I will have that deviled eggs recipe uploaded soon. Have an awesome day!!
