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
- 1 head (yes, a whole head) of garlic
- 1 Tbsp. olive oil
- 8 oz. pkg. 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.
