Thursday, April 24, 2014

I love a simple classic sandwich and my favorite is the BLT, for sure! and to make it even better, I decided to make a delicious homemade olive oil mayonnaise. Take a look:

Recipe by Sweet Caroline

Classic BLT
2 slices of crusty bread
4 slices of cooked and crispy bacon
Few slices of tomato
Few romaine lettuce leaves
1 tablespoon mayonnaise (recipe follows)

Toast bread slices. Spread mayonnaise of each bread slice, arrange romaine lettuce leaves, tomatoes, cooked and crispy bacon and top with the other toasted bread slice. Serve and enjoy!

Olive Oil Mayonnaise
Ingredients (makes 1 cup):
2 egg yolks, at room temperature
1 egg, at room temperature
1 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup of extra virgin olive oil

In a blender, add the egg yolks, egg, vinegar, mustard and salt. Beat until creamy (about 1 minute). With the blender still running, pour the olive oil slowly like a long and thin stream. Stop the blender and  check the consistency and taste, season with more salt if necessary.
