Roast Beef Sandwiches with Garlic Aioli

User Rating 3.5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Garlic aioli is a sauce or spread that is made with a lot of sweet and nutty roasted garlic. It can be used as any sandwich spread, or as an appetizer spread with crackers.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 45 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Yield: 8 servings


  • 1 head (yes, a whole head) of garlic
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • Crusty french bread, sliced
  • Cooked sliced roast beef
  • Fresh basil leaves
  • Fresh sliced tomatoes


Cut off the very top of garlic head, place on foil square and drizzle with oil. Wrap up, place on baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees 45-60 minutes or until very soft and light brown. Let cool. Remove garlic pulp from papery skins by turning inside out and squeezing. Blend the softened cream cheese with the garlic. Refrigerate.

Use as a sandwich spread with the remaining ingredients, or with any sandwich. It's also an excellent appetizer spread.

I don't care what it's called - I love it!, Member Tony6661959

If there was a better way to use up leftover roast beef, I haven't met it yet. Don't get hung up on technical terms - just make this. Right now!
