Paleo Baconnaise (homemade bacon mayo)


I love to use mayonnaise in many of my salad recipes. But, the store bought mayo almost always contains toxic seed oils and other chemical additives. Yuck! I have been experimenting with making my own mayo and using different oils as the base. Then one day I decided to try out some bacon grease I had left over. I mean, who doesnt love bacon? Wow, baconnaise was born! So delicious and it really lends an amazing flavor to so many foods.


  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 tsp prepared (gluten-free) mustard
  • 3 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 cup liquid bacon fat


  • Put yolks, mustard, and lemon juice into a food processor
  • Turn it on and slowly drizzle in the bacon fat…and I mean s-l-o-w-l-y, this is what emulsifies the fat and gives it the mayo it’s consistency
  • Season with salt and pepper to your taste preference
  • Store in a glass jar (I love this one!)
  • Lasts a few week in the fridge
