Roasted Red Pepper Mayo

Because sometimes plain old mayo just isn't enough...

So you're out at a restaurant (yes, very occasionally we do venture out of the sticks!)
and you order fries with your meal, because, um, you're out so it's okay to be bad right?
The waitress asks if you would like blahblahblah dipping sauce to go with?  Um, yes please!
Nine times out of ten the flavoured mayo they give you is bomb,
and you proceed to dip the entire meal in it's delicious creamy goodness, not caring if others are staring.

Well, I decided that it was okay to be bad at home every now and then too, 
and if a restaurant can make it, well dammit, i can too.

I went all (ahem) french and ate this with fries, but the next day we put it on sandwiches and were blown away!
Of course, i was too busy eating to take an actual photo, but swap in for mayo on your favorite 
sammy and you might never go back to plain old boring mayo again!

Roasted Red Pepper Mayo

1 Red Pepper, roasted and skin removed (i cheated and used the jarred variety - easy!)
1 large clove of garlic
1/4 cup mayo
A squirt of lemon juice
Salt and Pepper to taste

This is too easy... 
Put the garlic clove in the food processor and give it a few pulses, just for a headstart.
Add everything else and let it go until desired consistency is reached.
Season to taste with S &P.

Ps - let it sit for a while in the fridge to let the flavours really come together!

Happy Friday : )
