If you’ve never tried roasting garlic, we’ll let you in on a little secret: it’s incredibly easy. Not to mention it serves as the perfect topper to a slice of toasted French bread. Garlic bulbs (heads of garlic) are made up of as many as 15 sections called cloves. Just follow Betty’s simple directions for handling each part of the garlic, and in a few short steps you’ll have made a decadent new spread!
What you'll need:
- 1 to 4 bulbs of garlic
- 2 teaspoons olive or vegetable oil for each bulb
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Sliced French bread, if desired
- Cutting board
- Pie plate or shallow baking dish.
1. Heat oven to 350°F. Peel paper-like skin from around each bulb of garlic, leaving just enough to hold garlic cloves together.
