“You can even add a couple tablespoons grated parmesan cheese to the cornflake mixture if desired, to easily crush the cornflakes place in a heavy ziploc bag, seal the bag and crush with a rolling pin, or you can purchase the cornflake crumbs in a box already crushed. Try to make the aioli up to a day in advance to blend flavors.”
