Just had an unsuccessful attempt in making bacon drippings infused mayonnaise.

And what do you know, the culprit is the bacon drippings:eek::(

I only discovered this on the third attempt(imagine not using a food processor for the process) :s8: Roughly one cup of EVOO from iherb was wasted :(

It is still possible to make it but you need to whip the mayonnaise using pure oil first(only discovered this after the 2nd attempt as I was using oil + bacon drippings mixture for the first 2 batch). On the 3rd attempt, after exceeding the amount of bacon drippings the mayo could hold, the mixture immediately fell apart. Apparently bacon drippings don't emulsify well.

Good luck to those trying to attempt this feat. I would recommend using bacons bits instead of the drippings(as suggested by others online):o

my guess is bacon drippings contain water and other stuff so it's difficult to emulsify.. one egg yolk can actually emulsify up to 15 cups of oil.. but it will be runny mayo and wont be gao gao.

have you tried melted lard instead of bacon drippings?

thanks ah. you made a mess so we don't have to. :s13:

Good lard(leaf lard) are hard to find in Singapore and the normal lard(back fats?) has the smell that doesn't go well with mayo. Also lard consist of high proportions of saturated fats so it will turn more solid in the fridge. Bacon drippings was used coz it has that bacon flavor, else I also won't bother with saturated fats :s13:

I think the fool proof method in this case would be to use bacon bits in mayo made using oil high in monounsaturated fats.

the only thing I buy from campbell's is the REAL STOCK..

I marinate mince pork with cheese, olive oil, sea salt, black pepper, dill, basil and parsley.
then flatten and put inside the round pan and bake for around 10 mins
take out and drain off the water and grease
layer tomato on top of the pork base (i used kimchi. since got leftover haha.)
den layer cheese
den add chilli padi
den add mushrooms
den add another layer of cheese again. bake for 20 mins.

漂亮!
