How to recycle broken mayo?

I've been able to rescue broken mayo before, but this time it is utterly messed up. I've added extra egg yolk, more dijon, etc. etc., but no go. Is there anything I can make with this now? I hate to dump good olive oil and my backyard chickens' eggs.

    How's the weather? If there's a front coming in with storm activity you can just forget it for now. If that's not the case then I'm as baffled as you are; those are the only circumstances where mine has failed to come together.

      Weather is fine (here in Michigan). I'm wondering if I can just turn it into some sort of caeser salad dressing. I actually tried adding a third egg. It starts to thicken then turns into an olive oil smoothie.

      Set the broken mayonnaise aside.

      Get a new room temp egg and new room temp oil. Get the emulsion going. When this is in a satisfactory state, gradually combine in the broken mayonnaise.
