Foolproof Homemade Mayonnaise

Foolproof Homemade Mayonnaise....I love this recipe! A quick way to do your own homemade mayonnaise.... and make it custom-made. Simply add your own flavorings...chipotle powder, garlic, dill, cilantro... you get the idea!
This recipe asks for 1 raw egg. There is lemon juice which actually cooks the egg and from what experts say there is a very small chance that you will get sick from the raw egg. If you are not too comfortable with that (like I was), I found that poaching the egg in boiling water works just as well. Hope you enjoy...

Note: If you want a stiffer mayo, you may add a bit more oil. I thought the consistency was perfect.
