miracle whip

So last night I decided to try and make homemade Miracle Whip. (Good thing I did too, because we had egg sandwiches for breakfast and you can't have those without your cheese and miracle whip)! I found it at RecipeZaar. Here is the original recipe:


  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon powered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice or vinegar*
  • 1 1/2 cups oil*
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons flour or cornstarch*
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 cup boiling water
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • salt


  1. Using a blender or electric mixer, blend egg yolks, salt, sugar and 1 tablespoons of the lemon juice.
  2. Slowly pour in 1 cup oil, a few drops at a time, mixing thoroughly.
  3. Add remaining 1/2 cup oil a little faster, carefully blending in each bit before adding the remaining 2 tablespoons lemon juice.
  4. Mix the flour, mustard, boiling water and vinegar together until smooth.
  5. Pour into a small saucepan and cook until smooth and paste-like (but not too thick).
  6. Slowly add this hot mixture to the mayonnaise and blend well.
  7. Pour in a container and cool in the refrigerator.

I modified it a bit by adding a couple more tablespoons of powdered sugar, 1/4 tsp paprika, 1/4 tsp garlic salt. It actually turned out tasting pretty close to the original. Not exact, but still good. It took a little time to make, next time I'll wait til the kiddos are fast asleep. I already had a Miracle Whip squeeze bottle in my fridge (empty), so I filled that up with my mixture and had 3 tablespoons left over that wouldn't fit. I like that this saves me a little money by using things I always have in my kitchen, and I know exactly what went into making it!

*I used lemon juice and cornstarch and VEGETABLE oil (I read where olive oil makes it turn out wrong).

Also today's my birthday. So I am going to attempt to make a Boston Cream Pie from scratch! I'll let you know how it goes and if it's a keeper in my recipe collection! Hurray for pie :)
