Updated May 5, 2005

Ingredients

  • 3 large garlic bulbs
  • 1 tablespoon olive or vegetable oil
  • 16 thin slices French bread

Steps

  • 1
    Carefully peel paperlike skin from around each bulb of garlic, leaving just enough to hold garlic cloves together.
  • 2
    Place each garlic bulb on 12-inch square of heavy-duty aluminum foil. Brush bulbs with oil. Wrap foil securely around each bulb.
  • 3
    Heat coals or gas grill. Cover and grill 4 inches from medium coals 25 to 35 minutes or until garlic is tender when pierced with toothpick or fork.
  • 4
    Grill bread 4 inches from medium coals about 5 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. To serve, gently squeeze garlic out of cloves; spread on bread.

  • Buy the best. Choose plump, firm heads of garlic that are free of sprouts and spots.
  • Add any leftover grilled garlic to mashed potatoes or toss with grilled veggies.
