Aioli Asiago Cheese Bread


Author Notes: 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

Food52 Review: 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
