Low Carb Bacon Mayonnaise Recipe
Instead of using traditional mayonnaise for your low carb sandwiches, wraps and dressing base, consider using bacon mayo. Bacon mayonnaise is creamy like regular mayo but it is bacon flavored.
Also called baconnaise, this is a keto condiment to make as long as you have saved up your leftover bacon grease from all bacon you fry every morning on your low carb diet.
What is bacon mayo made of?
Bacon mayo is primarily made out of bacon grease and egg yolk. The egg yolk helps to form an emulsion. Vinegar or an acid like lemon juice is added to the egg yolk to help keep that emulsion together. Bacon grease is very slowly drizzled into the egg yolk while mixing constantly. If the bacon grease is added too quickly the emulsion can break and you will get an oily liquid instead of mayonnaise.
After all the bacon grease is added to the egg yolk and it has a mayo like consistency, you can add other ingredients to enhance the flavor of the bacon mayonnaise.
In this recipe, we add Dijon mustard. Consider adding any of the following to help liven up the flavor of your bacon mayo:
- cayenne pepper
- red pepper flakes
- sriracha sauce
- hot sauce
- liquid smoke
- minced red onion
- minced garlic
- bacon bits
