    Sounds lovely, but I cannot eat eggs. Does it have to have eggs in it?

    Hi Pat P., I've tried already to make mayonnaise with milk instead of egg: 50 ml milk for 100 ml of oil, using the "hand mixer" method. I haven't tried with butter tough. Hope it helps!

    I normally use a whole egg, cup of oil and stick blender. Might try this method but with butter.
    Don't really like mayo using almond/macadamia and other oils. So hopefully this will be the thing .... will try devilled eggs with it too.

    You should make it yourself, store-bought always contains a lot of crap, and can't be called real "Mayonnaise".

    There is something in you "Diet" causing your body to respond to Eggs, just like with people who can't handle "Tomatoes" etc, but that is NOT the real reason, it is "Fake" stuff in your Diet, that makes your body confused... I used to be Allergic to Grass, Kiwi, Mango, then studied Food Science, realizing that we're just being lied to by officials, Governments, we need to eat like our Ancestors did, and all these weird Allergies, simply goes away :) Good luck!

    Could I omit Dijon mustard? Not really a fan of it all the time.
