  1. This aioli is so good! I love the deep garlic flavor. I used it on mushroom swiss bacon burgers last night, and it was fantastic!






    1. Hi Denise! Hm, I supposed you could try using it. Just make sure it’s not flavored (even with vanilla), as that will make the aioli weirdly sweet instead of the tangy, savory flavor it should have. Let me know how it turns out!
