....i decided to make one location for my recipes so i can keep up with them
whats on the menu today?? HOMEMADE MAYONNAISE
and ROASTED RED PEPPER CRAB CAKES
using 1/2 of 1 IP Potato Puree Packet
ok so i have been wanting some crab cakes!!! i thought i had read somewhere on the IP treads that someone made crab cakes using the potato puree...but i could not find it....so i asked several people, and they never heard of it, so i decided i must have dreamt it!!! so i thought heck, why not....try to make some anyway!!! how hard can it be right???
first off let me say i have never in my life made homemade mayonnaise!!...that is until....today!! OMG....how easy was that!!! i will never buy store bought mayo again!!!
it was super easy to make using my little magic bullet!! its thick, creamy and best of all, all natural!!! here is the simple recipe!!
- 1 large egg white
1/2 tsp egg yolk (this is about 1/4 of an egg yolk)
2 TBSP Light Olive Oil NOT evoo
2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp yellow mustard
1/8 tsp sea salt
Use the flat blade blender of your Magic Bullet. Add in the egg white, the yolk, 1 TBSP oil
, the lemon juice, mustard and salt...remember to only add 1 tbsp oil at this time.
Pulse quickly for 4-5 short pulses...and you will see it start to whiten and come together, then pulse for 10 secs....wait a few seconds and pulse again for 10 secs.....then add your last TBSP oil, and repeat above....pulsing for only 10 seconds at a time, until thick and creamy!!!! AMAZING!!!!!!!! you now have mayo!!! if you like sweet mayo like miracle whip you can add some stevia or splenda to taste but i did not.
this made 6 TBSP mayo...which can keep in the fridge in an air tight container for 2 weeks.
UP NEXT....time to prepare the crab cakes!!!
