This recipe is probably an unconventional use of aioli, but if you love garlic you'll love this, too. It's wonderful paired with a simple grilled steak! —inpatskitchen

Test Kitchen Notes

When you slather homemade aioli on crusty bread, top it with a generous helping of cheese, and then bake it into melty goodness, it can't be bad. The scallions cut through the creamy garlic richness and keep this take on cheesy garlic bread tasting bright and fresh. The (easy!) aioli recipe makes enough for another loaf -- don’t question, just make two. Graciously accept the compliments and thanks of your dinner companions. —ALW

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining. My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
