What is Aioli--Counter Intelligence

Aļoli is a garlic mayonnaise, originally from the Provence region of France. It's used as a condiment for potatoes, fish, and vegetables.

Directions
1. 
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter 4 muffin cups. In a small bowl, combine melted butter and garlic.
2. 
On a cutting board, stack 3 phyllo sheets and cut into fourths, forming 12 squares. Cover phyllo with a damp paper towel when not in use because it dries out quickly.
3. 
Press 1 phyllo square (one sheet thick) into bottom of each muffin cup. (Don't worry if phyllo tears.) Brush with butter. Add another layer of phyllo and brush with butter. Repeat a third time.
4. 
Bake for 10 minutes. Carefully remove phyllo baskets from muffin cups and cool on wire rack.
5. 
In a medium bowl, beat eggs, add salt and pepper to taste with 2 tablespoons water or sour cream.
6. 
Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a medium skillet and add eggs. Sprinkle ham over eggs. Scramble eggs to desired doneness. Sprinkle in cheese and stir until melted. Spoon into phyllo baskets. Sprinkle tops with a little more cheese.
