Left over aioli

thimes Apr 9, 2013 06:41 PM

I had a big party this past weekend and I have almost 2 cups of left-over home-made aioli. It is getting towards the end of its "safe" lifespan and there is no way I can go through it all as "aioli".

Anyone have any creative solutions for it?

I was thinking that since it is essentially yolks, garlic, oil, lemon that maybe I could use it as a base for some sort of twist on carbonara (after reading and thinking about another thread going on). Anyone ever tried that radical of a twist?

    Baked fish?

      make a potato gratin, maybe with leeks or fennel. that baking will help "extend" the life of the aioli, too.
      it would be good with rigatoni and a nice sausage (sliced). mushrooms would also be delicious in this pasta dish.
      add some broth to make a soup.
      caramelized onions would be good in this soup, too.
      add some minced chives and tarragon, and a little cream and pour over poached eggs with smoked salmon, prosciutto, bacon, or spinach underneath -- all on a crusty english muffin (benedict style).
      freeze a small amount to see how it freezes. take that out in future and let us know. ;-).

          as the binder in some kind of spin on crab cakes or meat loaf?

          but you may have to walk away this time.
