Recipe: Cooked Mayonnaise

A Dressing that is very similar both in texture and taste to the mayonnaise just explained and perhaps a little easier to make is known as cooked mayonnaise. This Dressing, as will be noted from the accompanying recipe, may be made in larger quantities than the uncooked mayonnaise.


  •  2 Tb. oil
  •  1/4 tsp. mustard
  •  4 Tb. flour
  •  1/4 tsp. paprika
  •  1/2 c. vinegar
  •  2 eggs
  •  1 c. boiling water
  •  2 c. oil
  •  1 Tb. salt

Mix the 2 tablespoonfuls of oil and the flour and pour in the vinegar. Add the boiling water and stir the mixture until it is perfectly smooth and well mixed. Place over the fire and cook for about 5 minutes. Remove from the fire and cool. When completely cooled, add the salt, mustard, and paprika. Separate the eggs and beat the yolks and whites separately. Add the egg yolks to the mixture. Add the 2 cupfuls of oil a little at a time, beating thoroughly with a rotary beater each time oil is added. When all of this is completely mixed and thoroughly beaten, fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites.
