Roasted Garlic Thyme Aioli

Who is ready for the darn weekend?! I know I am. 🙋🏻‍♀️ And just in time for the weekend I figured you should know about Roasted Garlic Thyme Aioli. I have been making it FOREVER, and if you have been following along I have talked about how much I love roasted garlic before.

This sauce will blow. your. socks. off. It is the definition of a crowd pleaser and I have never served it to anyone that didn’t immediately fall in love with it.

It only takes maybe 10 minutes of minimal labor to make this aioli. The longest (and hardest) part is waiting for the garlic cloves to roast in the oven, and then letting the aioli chill before serving it. We have tried both ways, making it and diving right in, and making it and letting it sit for a while. We both agreed that letting it sit helped give the magnificent flavors time to develop properly.
