Oh, the house will smell sooo good because garlic becomes rich and mellow when roasted!

Updated October 5, 2005

Ingredients

  • 2
    garlic bulbs
  • 4
    teaspoons olive or vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Sliced French bread, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    Carefully peel paperlike skin from around each bulb of garlic, leaving just enough to hold garlic cloves together. Cut 1/4 to 1/2 inch from top of each bulb to expose cloves. Place cut side up on 12-inch square of aluminum foil.
  • 3
    Drizzle each bulb with 2 teaspoons oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Wrap securely in foil. Place in pie plate or shallow baking pan.
  • 4
    Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until garlic is tender when pierced with toothpick or fork. Cool slightly. To serve, gently squeeze soft garlic out of cloves. Spread on bread.

  • Look for firm, dry, unshriveled and plump bulbs of garlic with the skins intact.
  • Try this savory spread with crispy crostini or soft baguette slices.
