Sun-dried Tomato Aioli

One of the great things about our bed and breakfast is your stay includes dinner and breakfast. However, many of our guests do not realize that we do offer lunch service by request and that lunch is also included with many of spa packages. One of lunch specialities is our chicken club sandwich with sun-dried tomato aioli. The aioli can give any sandwich or wrap a great zing to what could be an otherwise plain sandwich. It's easy to prepare if you have a food processor or blender on hand. We thought we'd share the aioli recipe with ya'll so you could try it on your favorite sandwich or wrap.

Yield: About 3 Cups

1/2 Cup of Sun-dried Tomatoes.
2 Cup Canola Oil
4 Egg Yolks
1 Bulbs of Roasted Garlic
1 Tbsp of Lemon Juice
2 tsp of salt

Trim off top of Garlic bulb and drizzle with olive oil.  Roast Garlic in 400 Degree oven for 30 minutes or until cloves are soft.

Add sun-dried tomatoes, eggs, and roasted garlic to food processor until coarsely blended.

With motor running slowly add oil to mixture to properly emulsify the eggs and oil together. Blend until thick and creamy. Once oil is fully incorporated add lemon juice and blend. Finally season with salt.

Spread on your favorite sandwich or wrap and enjoy!
