This is an awesome and simple bread spread to use in place of butter or garlic butter. Use light mayonnaise if you want fewer calories. The prep time is almost nothing if you have roasted garlic in the fridge from a previous meal. Spread thinly on bread before toasting in the oven or serve in a bowl for guests to apply to their own bread.

Tasty! This would also be a great topper for burgers or steak sandwiches. I used light mayo. I would make this again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

I made this per recipe but found it a bit too oily so I tweaked it using homemade ricotta cheese instead of mayonnaise. You could also use cottage cheese that has been pureed or mashed up a bit though to save a bit of money and time. Then I made a roast beef Panini sandwich with red onions provolone cheese and fresh basil leaves. Yummy! Read More
