keto aioli

 1 egg yolk
 1 tsp lemon juice
 2 cloves garlic, smashed to a paste
 ½ tsp salt
 ½ tsp Dijon mustard
 ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
 ½ cup olive oil
 black pepper, ground

In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the egg yolk, lemon juice, garlic paste, salt, and mustard.


Add 1 tablespoon of the olive oil and stir until it begins to combine with the other ingredients. Then, in a steady stream, pour in the remaining olive oil and the olive oil, whisking constantly to emulsify (combine) the oil and egg yolk. The egg yolk mixture should look like it is absorbing the oil.


Season to taste with pepper. Use immediately or store your keto aioli in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 10 days.

Variation: Bacon Keto Aioli

Substitute warmed bacon fat for the 1/2 cup of olive oil. The bacon fat should be liquid, but not so hot that it cooks the egg yolk. A safe temperature would be 100°F to 120°F.
