Slice and lightly toast baguette on a sheet pan with a drizzle of olive oil. Rub garlic cloves over the baguette slices to flavor the bread. Slice each tomato in half and do the same, rubbing each baguette slice with the cut side of a tomato. Top with ½-1 slices of ham and basil

Step One

Preheat the oven to 425F. Cut the tops off the heads of garlic and place both in a square of aluminum foil. Drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Close the foil up to make a packet and put on a baking sheet. Slide into the oven and roast for 45 minutes or until browned and soft. Remove from the oven and when cool, squeeze the garlic into a bowl of a food processor.

Step Two 

Add the mayo, lemon juice, Dijon, Worcestershire and hot sauce to the food processor and puree until creamy. Best made at least 4 hours in advance and stored in the fridge covered tightly, to allow flavors to soften. Garnish with parsley and serve with roasted baby potatoes and chicken or shrimp skewers and lemon wedges.

If lemon and garlic go well together – we need a wine with lots of lemon flavor, too! A crisp white like an Italian Pinot Grigio will work beautifully – adding a squeeze more refreshing citrus to the strong flavor of garlic.
