Smoky Mayonnaise

[the_ad_placement id=”content-top”]

Smoky mayonnaise is a great way to bring a garlicky, smoky flavor to potato salads, roast beef sandwiches, and burgers.

This homemade smoky mayo recipe gets its flavors from the smoked paprika, garlic, and apple cider vinegar.

A couple of tips when you’re making homemade mayonnaise. The first is to let the egg yolk come to room temperature. The second is put the oil in a squirt bottle; this makes it a lot easier to control the oil as it’s being added.

A great recipe for this mayo is Smokehouse Potato Salad. It also works as a dip with fries and onion rings.
