GTTC - skillet chips with lemon-garlic aioli

In the vegetable garden this week are lots of blooms, but nothing yet to harvest but herbs, so I'm still finding ways to use my super strong fresh garlic. What are you cooking up this week? Post about it, link here, and add your name to Mr. Linky below to share with other readers!

Lemon-Garlic Aioli (makes about a cup)
  • Add the following to a food processor: 1/4 cup lemon juice, several cloves of chopped garlic, 1/4 cup mayonnaise, a splash of hot sauce. Process till smooth.
  • While running the processor, drizzle in 1/2 cup of olive oil until incorporated.
  • Salt/pepper to taste.

Skillet Chips
  • Slice potatoes as thinly as possible (a mandolin kind of slicer would be helpful).
  • Intend to make galettes by organizing slicse in a flower pattern about three layers thick in a skillet with a little oil. Place a small plate on top of galette. Cross your fingers that you'll be successful but know that the one time you made amazing galettes was just a fluke.
  • If/when you fail, simply separate the slices and let cook till golden brown. Serve with aioli feeling successful about this serendipitous result.


  1. Now that is my kind of recipe! (the second one, though the first is good too) I have a ton of potatoes to use, so I will have to try it.

  2. I'll have to try that aioli. Looks awesome! And I just harvested garlic so yum and yum.

  3. Oh. Yum. That sounds so fabulous. We're big on salads with an appetizer of some sort as a dinner in the summer. This looks just perfect - we've got a ton of fresh garlic to use now, too!

  4. I am going to bookmark this and wait for my garlic harvest to try this recipe. Lovely dish to enjoy with family, Wendy!

  5. I've never been able to do that flipping thing ;-) I figure that's what broilers are for. On the other hand, the idea of skillet chips sounds inspired/inspiring! And I'm just about ready to dig the potatoes.

  6. I can relate to the serendipitous aspect of this recipe. I reckon in the garden and the kitchen it's good to create the conditions for a bit of randomness, then life is always interesting.

  7. Looks so yummy! I should try this!

  8. Google doesn't translate well what you write, but I think it's nice to cook with ingredients that are found in the garden. I love potatoes!


My awesome gardening friends...thanks for leaving a comment! I don't typically repond here, but I love knowing who you are so I can visit your blog as well.

btw - if you're trying to show me nude Miley Cyrus photos, sell me nikes or viagra or antibiotics, or encourage my lovely garden readers to visit your site on solar panel construction, or seo-whatevers, sorry, but I'm not publishing your comment. If you want to moderate my blog - well, I can't keep you too busy, and the pay would be horrible. And lastly, no. I'm not interested in Club Penguin cheat codes. Thanks anyway.
