Roasted Garlic

If you’ve dined out with me a few times, then there are two things on a menu you know I will always order: the roasted garlic appetizer and then (almost) anything with goat cheese. I decided to make the roasted garlic at home, which meant a whole head just for me!

Step One: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Step Two: Peel away the outermost layers of the garlic bulbs, but be sure to leave the  skins of the cloves intact. Use a sharp knife to slice the tops off of the bulbs so the garlic  cloves are exposed.

Step Three: Place the garlic bulbs inside muffin tins (the perfect little holder!). Drizzle olive oil over the tops of the bulbs so the cloves are covered.

Step Four: Cover the garlic bulbs with aluminum foil and bake in the 400 degree oven  for 30 to 45 minutes, until the cloves are soft and golden.

Step Five: Use a cocktail fork to pull the roasted cloves from the bulbs and spread the roasted garlicy-goodness onto slices of French bread.

Of course, after eating all of this garlic, no one will really want to be around me for a while, but sometimes that’s a good thing!
