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 leftover. I mean, who doesn’t love bacon? Wow, baconnaise was born! So delicious and it really lends an amazing flavor to so many foods.

Paleo Baconnaise

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

Bacon makes everything taste better...even mayo! Use this paleo baconnaise in salads and sandwiches with gluten-free bread.


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


1. Put yolks, mustard, and lemon juice into a food processor.

2. 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.

3. Season with salt and pepper to your taste preference.

4. Store in a glass jar.

5. Lasts a few weeks in the fridge.
