We think bacon is a perfect addition to aioli and we also have a great guide to making some bacon in the instant pot.

What is bacon aioli?

Aioli is a Northwest Mediterranean dip, it means “garlic and oil”. As the name suggests, it is made from minced garlic, olive oil, salt, and eggs.

For bacon aioli, we add crispy bits of bacon to the tasty aioli mixture. We also sprinkle small pieces of bacon over the aioli to garnish. We use three rashers of bacon and we make sure to get the bacon very crispy. The crispiness of the bacon is a great contrast to the smooth aioli dip.

Bacon aioli is very easy to make! There is one very easy route by using jarred aioli from the supermarket. However, you could make your own aioli from scratch or use a simpler version of aioli using mayonnaise as we do in this recipe.

In all versions, you just need to mix in your crispy bacon bits to the creamy aioli, and just like that you’ll have a party favorite.

How long can I store bacon aioli in the fridge?

You can store bacon aioli in the fridge for around 2-3 days. However, we really suggest making a fresh batch of bacon for your aioli each time you’re getting some out.

  • 3 rashers chopped cooked bacon

Instructions

  2. If you’re using the bacon aioli as a dip, we recommend keeping aside a spinkle of bacon bits and add that as garnish on top of the dip before serving.

Notes

  • To save time when making recipes that use lots of garlic, we recommend using garlic paste. One teaspoon of garlic paste is the equivalent of one clove of garlic.
