Q: Tried to make home-made mayo today via Alton Brown — major fail. Very liquidy no matter how much I whisk.

Any idea on what I can do with the disaster leftover?

Editor: Amy, I have a hunch that you can continue to work on it; just add an extra egg yolk. Take a look at these two posts for some good mayonnaise tips and instruction:

And if that fails, well, try whisking in a few more whole eggs and some herbs and baking the whole thing as a frittata.

Readers, any thoughts for Amy and her failed mayo?
