The Shady Porch: Grilled Philly Burgers with Garlic Aioli


Grilled Philly Burgers with Garlic Aioli

We love the flavors of the classic, iconic Philly Steak sandwich, but, since this is National Hamburger month, I thought I would take the flavors of sauteed onions, mushrooms, bell peppers, and provolone cheese and create Philly Burgers. A great sandwich is complemented by great condiments (so obvious, right?), so I whipped up a garlic aioli that served as a terrific addition to this delicious sandwich.

Garlic Aioli (an aioli is a sauce with a mayonnaise base)
1 can Red Gold Garlic & Olive Oil Petite Diced Tomatoes, drained
1/2 c. mayonnaise
Mix and refrigerate until burgers are ready; this will allow the flavors to blend.

Philly Burgers
1/4 lb hamburger patties with a dash of Worcestershire sauce on each side, cook to your liking
1/4 c. butter
1 large onion sliced
2 cups mushroom, sliced
1 green bell pepper, sliced

Contest Notice!
I wanted to tell you how I came about making this new garlic aioli. If you follow the Shady Porch, you might remember I've made garlic aioli in the past for my Pot Roast Sandwich w/ Roasted Garlic Mayonnaise. This time, I didn't roast my own garlic, but rather prepared the aioli using the Red Gold Garlic & Olive Oil Petite Diced Tomatoes.
