We donâ€™t always have fries for dinner, but when we do, we make four gallons of this roasted garlic aioli for dipping. This sauce is one of our all time favorite recipes to make for an added touch to almost any meal. While primarily used for dipping fries (or potatoes in any form), weâ€™ve also used it on burgers, baked chicken, and even veggies, when weâ€™re feeling like we want to be healthy-ish.
The secret to this finger licking good aioli is the roasted garlic. While this process takes a little extra time, we promise itâ€™ll be worth it in the end. The fragrant garlic pairs with lemon, rosemary, and just a hint of cayenne pepper for a little kick. Go ahead and whip up this roasted garlic and herb aioli – but donâ€™t say we didnâ€™t warn you: this stuff is addicting!!
