Roasted Garlic

saturday night dinner 003

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2. Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin, leaving the skins of the individual cloves intact. Using a knife, cut off 1/4 off the top of cloves, exposing the individual cloves of garlic.

3. Place the garlic heads in a baking pan. Drizzle a couple teaspoons of olive oil over each head, using your fingers to make sure the garlic head is well coated. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 400°F for 40 – 45 minutes, or until the cloves feel soft when pressed.

4 Allow the garlic to cool enough so you can touch it without burning yourself. squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins onto your favorite bread and enjoy.
Eat as or mash with a fork and use for cooking. Can be spread over warm French bread, and mixed with sour cream for a topping for baked potatoes
