Roasted Garlic
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
In less than an hour, garlic can be roasted in the oven to become sweet, mellow, caramelized ... and SPREADABLE!
  • Garlic bulbs
  • Olive oil
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin, leaving the skins of the individual bulbs intact.
  3. Using a knife, cut off ¼ to ½ inch of the top of the cloves, exposing the individual tops of the garlic.
  4. Place the garlic bulbs in a baking pan, or a muffin pan. Drizzle lots of olive oil over each head, making sure the garlic heads are well coated. If you want to end up with garlic infused olive oil, use extra olive oil in this step.
  5. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the cloves feel soft when pressed.
  6. Allow the garlic to cool enough so you can touch it. Cut the skin slightly around each clove and use a cocktail fork or your fingers to pull or squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins.
