Warm a bowl with hot water and dry well. Put a dab of mustard in the bowl. Stir the failed sauce together as best you can and dribble it slowly into the mustard, whisking by hand.
It always works, if you go slow, even if the machine failed.
the only exception would be if there is a lightening storm in progress--I know that one from experience.
The French also believe a failed mayonnaise is a sign you're pregnant. Leave it to the French to come up with a pregnancy test that is also a sauce.
