Give your winter table more flavor by roasting garlic before adding it to hearty soups and sauces, mixing it into pesto, or simply spreading it on crusty, toasted bread. It’s easy to make these buttery cloves and they sit in the oven while the rest of your dinner is cooking.
Peel off the excess “skin” from the head of garlic.
Cut 1/4 -1/3 off the top of the garlic to expose as many cloves as possible.
Drizzle with olive oil – be liberal!
Place garlic on a piece of foil.
Make a garlic and oil package and place in an ovenproof baking dish.
Bake for 45-55 minutes in a 400 degree oven until the cloves are golden brown. Allow the cloves to cool for 10-15 minutes before gently squeezing the garlic out of the skin.
