Mayonnaise & Good Stuff Sauce

Did you know May is National Hamburger Month?

I love a good burger. I’ve shared several fun burger recipes before, but a basic burger is just as fantastic when you use the right ingredients. Spike Mendelsohn’s The Good Stuff Cookbook  is my favorite source for burger basics (and not so basics). This Good Stuff Sauce is the perfect burger topping, and so quick to make.

I really like whipping up his homemade mayo to use as a base, but he recommends Hellman’s in the book if you don’t want to put in the extra effort. Either way, this is an easy sauce to whip up for your National Hamburger Month or Memorial Day feasts!

Homemade Mayonnaise
(from The Good Stuff Cookbook)
Makes about 2 cups

2 large eggs
4 t. Dijon mustard
2 t. white wine vinegar
1 t. sea salt
2 c. grapeseed oil

Add the eggs, mustard, vinegar and salt to a food processor. Process for 30 seconds. With the motor running, drizzle in the oil slowly at first, then add a thin, steady stream until the oil is added and mixture is smooth.

If too thin, process a little longer. If too thick, it can be thinned with a little hot water.

Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to one week.
