By • May 22, 2011 • 8 Comments

Author Notes: I found a recipe using mayo and garlic to roast potatoes years ago, and was inspired to try the same using homemade aioli.Hummusit

Serves 4-6

  • 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 egg yolks
  • pinches salt
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • 6 medium-large potatoes
  • S+P
  1. In a mixing bowl, combine garlic, salt, mustard, yolks, lemon juice, and water, and mix well.
  2. Using a mixer, add the olive oil slowly, spoonful by spoonful. The mixer should be set at medium speed, until the aioli thickens.
  3. Slice the potatoes, approximately 6-7 mm thick.
  4. In a baking pan, add aioli to to coat the potatoes generously. Arrange the slices in an overlapping layer, and sprinkle with [coarse] salt and pepper.
  5. Cover with foil, and bake in a hot oven for 1 hour. After an hour check to make sure the potatoes are cooked, then bake uncovered to brown.
  6. Bete'avon!

Hmmm... Can't seem to find the answer to my question.... What is a "hot" oven? 350F? 400F?

This sounds absolutely delicous, one of my favorite restaurants in my neighborhood bakes potatoes like this and serves with a spicy smokey paprika aioli, declicous. I have never baked with mayo have to try this.

I've never baked mayo on anything, so I think I need to give the idea a try. These sound wonderful.

I have baked with a mayo mix on fish before, and it was always great. I bet these are wonderful!

Interesting! We always think of dipping our fries in the aoili AFTER they are cooked.
