If you have never roasted garlic, now is the time to try it! The garlic mellows when slowly cooked and it caramelizes to a savory sweetness you will love. My favorite way to use it is with crusty bread, excellent butter and a smear of the roasted garlic. It can also be added to mashed potatoes, or used as an extra layer of goodness on homemade pizza.
Serves 4 generously
4 whole garlic bulbs
olive oil for drizzling
salt and pepper
How to Make It
Preheat the oven to 375°
Trim the top ¼ inch off the top of the garlic bulb, careful not to cut yourself!
Place the garlic cut-side up on a piece of foil, drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt.
Wrap the garlic in the foil and roast for 50 to 60 minutes or until the cloves are deeply golden brown and tender.
Bon Appétit, Enjoy, Provecho!
