Left over aioli

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?

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

    but you may have to walk away this time.

    1. A "tapas" meal--

      Start with a sliced baguette

      Bacon Olvie spread:
      6 Slices Crumbled Bacon
      1c Ripe Olives, Chopped
      1/2c Green Onion Tops, Chopped
      1 1/2c Shredded Cheddar Cheese
      1ts Curry
      1/2c your aoli

      Hot Beef Spread:
      1/2 C your aolil
      8oz Cream cheese; softened
      2 1/2oz Dried beef; finely chopped
      1/2c Pecans; chopped

      Spinach Spread:
      2 - 10oz. pkgs. frozen chopped spinach thawed, drained & squeezed dry in paper towels
      1 - 8oz. cream cheese, softened
      1/2c. your aoili
      1/2c. sour cream
      4 green onions, chopped

      Grilled tomatoes:
      1/2c grated parmesan and romano cheeses shopping list
      1/2c shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
      1/2c ricotta cheese
      1Tbs dried oregano
      1/2C your aoili
      pinch salt
      ~combine and put on: 4 large tomatoes, sliced

      1. 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. ;-).
