I think the recipe said one large egg white so I just used one serving of the egg beater egg whites which was, I believe, three tablespoons. Any idea what could have gone wrong? More or less of the egg whites maybe?
i have made the homemade mayo several times now, and i think mine is not as creamy when i don't use room temp. eggs. however, after putting it in the fridge it because more firm overnight and kept good for more than a week.

it's funny, sometimes my mayo is thick and creamy and sometimes it is more runny. i can't figure it out either!! thats the only thing i can think of, was the 2 times is was less creamy and thick was when i use cold eggs right from the fridge...hope that helps a little
