Burgers with a Basil Aioli

2012.04.21

Fresh basil from my garden. I've always wanted to have an herb garden. Thankfully there was a flower box in the back of my new place that was ripe for a "do over". I've got basil, cilantro, thyme, rosemary, and oregano growing.

Here I used a handful of fresh basil (from my new herb garden!), about 1 cloves of garlic, a 1/3 cup mayo, some cayenne pepper, and the juice from one lime (lemons are the traditional acid, but I only had limes). All you have to do is mix it together.

A little salt, pepper, garlic powder, and a hint of paprika

You can't grill stuff without a good beer to go with it. Brekenridge Vanilla Porter is a favorite of mine.

The finished product - grilled burgers with portabello mushrooms and asparagus.

Making an ailoi is a quick and easy way to brighten up any sandwich. It's tasty and doesn't require much to make.

Ingredients:
5 or 6 leaves of basil
1 clove of garlic
1/3 cup mayo
1 lime
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Directions:
Dice the basil, and garlic. Mix into the mayo. Add the salt, pepper, cayenne, and the juice from the lime. Mix and enjoy.
