Roasted Garlic Bulbs

Cuisine: Side Dish
Ingredients
  • Garlic bulbs (as many as you think you’ll eat”¦probably two small or one large is enough for several people at a meal)
  • Olive oil
Instructions
  1. Peel off the papery outside of the garlic bulb, leaving the cloves in tact and their individual skins attached.
  2. Cut off the top of the bulb so the cloves are exposed, probably about ½”³ or so. Sometimes you get a few bulbs around the outside that are too low to make the cut, so I just cut their tops off individually.
  3. If you are going to cook the garlic in foil, place the bulb in a piece of foil, then slowly drizzle olive oil all over the bulb, letting it seep down into the cloves. Wrap the foil around the garlic and place on a baking pan or dish.
  4. If you are not going to use foil, place bulb on a baking dish and drizzle slowly with oil as described above.
  5. Bake garlic in a 400-degree oven for approximately 30 minutes in foil or 20 minutes if not in foil. You basically cook the garlic until the cloves are nice and soft.
  6. Let cool a bit then serve with a knife. Dig the cloves out of the bulb with the knife then spread on your bread.
  7. You could also use the roasted garlic for cooking (think sauces, vegetables, the possibilities are endless!).
