You should grill up some cheeseburgers and give this a try. If your stick blender will hold enough air in the blade housing, you can put all the ingredients except the chopped dill pickle into the narrow mixing vessel, put the blender all the way to the bottom without activating it, then turn it on while slowly lifting it to the top of the mixture. Instant mayo! If you haven’t got a stick blender, you can put everything but the oil and chopped pickle into a shallow bowl and slowly drizzle in the oil while constantly whisking. If the mixture breaks (doesn’t emulsify and get thick) you can try again without wasting anything. YouTube search “how to fix broken mayo”.
