Burgers with a Basil Aioli

by Sewerranger April. 21, 2012 2601 views

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.

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.
