Roasted Garlic and Red Pepper Mayonnaise


This is basically mayonnaise, but with swag. Yes, I did just insert an urban street word that all the kids are using these days into my foodie post. The combination of roasted garlic, combined with the roasted bell pepper gives everyday mayo real depth of flavor. Who doesn't love roasted garlic? I like to use this spread on my turkey and muenster panini sandwiches. This would also make a great spread on hamburgers. You could thin it out with a little buttermilk and make a salad dressing out of it or you could do what I do and just eat it with crackers or fresh veggies. So go ahead and pimp out your mayo!

Roasted Garlic and Red Pepper Mayonnaise:

1 cup good quality mayonnaise
1 red bell pepper, roasted, peeled and sliced
1 head of garlic, roasted
1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper

Remove garlic cloves after roasting and place them into a small food processor or blender. Add in roasted red bell pepper slices and mayonnaise. Blend until smooth. Add fresh cracked pepper. 

Enjoy!

  2. Amy - I'm with you. I don't care for plain mayo. Most of the time I will substitute sour cream for it. I think when you add the roasted garlic and roasted red bell pepper it makes it taste so much better.
