Macaroni sandwich is a delish and filling sandwich that has, as the name suggests, the stuffing of macaroni, which is “oh so creamy and flavorsome”. The best part about this recipe is that with some boiled pasta (elbow pasta is what I used) in hand you can fix this sandwich within 10 minutes. The macaroni is cooked with aioli, butter, and cheese spread in the microwave for a minute or two. The same is sandwiched between two bread slices which have a layer of butter and aioli that makes the sandwich perfectly moist and delectable. There are a number of ways in which macaroni for the macaroni sandwiches can be prepared. However, I find this recipe very easy and absolutely toothsome. The macaroni sandwiches can be prepared for breakfast or a light meal, and depending on the weather the same can be teamed with a bowl of hot soup or a glass of chilled milkshake.
Well, what is Aioli? If I can put it in my own words I would say it is the garlicky cousin of Mayonnaise. Aioli is an emulsion of olive oil, egg yolks, and mustard with a lot of garlic, and traditionally it is prepared with the use of mortar pestle. So to understand the difference between mayonnaise and aioli, we can say that mayonnaise is prepared using canola oil whereas aioli calls for olive oil. Garlic is a very important ingredient for aioli and is often seen as the main difference between aioli and mayonnaise. Also, traditionally Aioli is prepared in a mortar pestle instead of blending. That more or less sums it up.
Sprig Aioli has a perfect balance of flavors. The best part is that is not just garlicky, it has some heat, which takes it to another level. Just a spoonful of Sprig Aioli can enhance your dish.
In Mediterranean cuisine, Aioli is served as a dip or sauce along with fish, meat, etc. However, the use of Aioli can be extended to sandwiches, burgers, pasta, salads, and more.
A sandwich is my comfort food. I love to fix a sandwich for breakfast or even lunch or dinner. The sandwich is also my answer to travel-food and picnic food. And therefore there are a number of sandwich recipes on the blog. You can find the same here.
