  • 3 coddled egg yolks (see note) Add to list
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice Add to list
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard Add to list
  • 1 teaspoon salt Add to list
  • 1 1/2 cups extra virgin olive oil (or you may use a blend with your favorite flavorful oil, such as almond, macadamia or avocado) Add to list


Place the egg yolks, lemon juice, mustard and salt in the bowl of a food processor and blend. With the machine running, pour the oil in a very thin stream through the feed tube until the consistency is thick and smooth.

Adjust the seasoning to your taste with additional salt, lemon juice or perhaps a splash of hot sauce.


To coddle an egg, place it in barely simmering water for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes (no longer). This will bring the egg to a safe temperature. Remove it and immediately crack it into a bowl. The white may turn a bit translucent, but it will still serve as a perfect base for emulsion. To use only the yolks, remove the yolk from the white by using the sharp edge of one of the halved eggshells as a scoop.
