Roasted Garlic is great right out of the oven, or to use in your favorite recipes.

Prep Time10 minsCook Time35 minsTotal Time45 mins
 Garlic Cloves
 Olive Oil (2 teaspoons per clove)
1

Preheat the oven to 400F.

2

Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin, leaving the skins of the individual cloves intact.

3

Using a knife, cut off 1/4 to a 1/2 inch of the top of cloves, exposing the individual cloves of garlic.

4

Place the garlic heads in a baking pan; muffin pans work well for this purpose.

5

Drizzle a couple teaspoons of olive oil over each head, using your fingers to make sure the garlic head is well coated.

6

Cover with aluminum foil.

7

Bake at 400F for 30-35 minutes, or until the cloves feel soft when pressed.

8

Allow the garlic to cool enough so you can touch it without burning yourself.

9

Use a small small knife cut the skin slightly around each clove.

10

Use a cocktail fork or your fingers to pull or squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins.

12

Eat as is (I love straight roasted garlic) or mash with a fork and use for cooking. Can be spread over warm French bread, mixed with sour cream for a topping for baked potatoes, or mixed in with Parmesan and pasta.
