- fresh baked bread sliced and lightly toasted
- heads of garlic
- extra virgin olive oil
1Preheat the oven to 400°F.
2Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin, leaving the skins of the individual cloves intact. Using a knife, cut off 1/4 to a 1/2 inch of the top of cloves, exposing the individual cloves of garlic.
3Place the garlic heads in a baking pan; muffin pans work well for this purpose. 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 for 30-35 minutes, or until the cloves feel soft when pressed.
4Allow the garlic to cool enough so you can touch it without burning yourself. Use a small small knife cut the skin slightly around each clove. Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins.
5Great served alone with fresh baked bread smashed and spread on top. Or use in recipes.
