The magic mayo strikes again! I told you guys I have lots of magic mayo concoctions, I’m surprised it’s taken me this long to post another. It’s amazing how adding some punch to your mayo can totally transform every day foods like sandwiches and burgers. And this one is probably as easy as it gets. 4 ingredients! I’m on a kick this week with the low ingredient lists. I’m not wasting any time. This stuff is seriously good.
Roasted Garlic-Tomato Spread
1 head roasted garlic
1/2 C sliced sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil and herbs
1/2 C mayonnaise
ohhhh this is a tough one. Toss the garlic, tomatoes, and mayo in the food processor and turn that baby on. Pulse a few times to combine and then add kosher salt to taste. I add a generous pinch. Then turn food processor on and let it process. I actually let mine go for quite a while- it seems to take a while to really break down those tomatoes. I watch the color and when it’s nice and red like in my picture I know it’s how I like it. Even processing for several minutes (in my food processor, who knows maybe yours is super-powered or something) it’s left with nice little chunks of tomatoes and roasted garlic and I love that.
See how gorgeous the color is?
Store it in the refrigerator and use it on everything you make until it’s gone. Seriously. How can something with only 4 little ingredients be so good?? I dunno, one of the mysteries of life, but it’s amazing. In our house we put it on all of our sandwiches and wraps. It will totally transform an every day hamburger and don’t even get me started on panini. When it melts into some ooey gooey cheese…..oh man. It would taste awesome on this one. I also have been known to use it more as a dip and slather it on bread, crackers, or veggies. Yes, I know it’s pretty much flavored mayo, and I still stand proudly behind my actions.
About thegrown-up breakfast sandwich. Do you ever find something you love and then just eat it every day for a ridiculously long time? That’s what happened with me and my breakfast so I thought I’d share. Back in Feb/March I seriously ate this every day for at least a month.
I just smeared this roasted garlic-tomato spread on half of a toasted whole wheat English Muffin. I topped it with spinach leaves, a fried egg, a little black pepper, and a sprinkling of fresh Parmesan cheese. Take that McGriddle.
