Michelle's Story

If you love garlic this is for you. Everyone loves it when I bring it to bbqs,holidays,birthdays ect. My husband and I enjoy this recipe so much. Baking time may vary so make sure to check often. I love to make this with butter but you can use olive oil instead.

Ingredients

6-8 large
garlic bulbs(not sprouted preferably)
1-2 stick
of soft butter or olive oil if you prefer.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
preheat oven to 325.Cut ends off garlic making sure all cloves are exposed.Trying not to cut to far down.
2
Rub excess loose paper off bulbs leaving some surrounded around cloves.
3
Rub soft butter all over cloves making sure to get butter into all the cracks.
4
Set bulbs bottom side down with exposed cloves up in baking dish.
5
Cover top in foil and bake on 325 for 1-2 1/2 hours. Check every 1/2 hour and baste butter or olive oil on top to keep from drying.
6
When garlic starts to pop out of bulb and becomes a golden brown and soft you know its done.
7
Let cool to room temperature. and remove garlic from bulb( the end of a peeler works great) carefully.
8
Add all cloves to bowl and mix in soft butter or olive oil which ever you prefer. It will then be a spread you can use on any kind of bread you choose.
9
Your house will smell strongly like roasted garlic. For all you garlic lovers you will love this recipe. Everyone I have made this for begs for more. You can refridgerate for a long time but usually its gone b4 you can put it away.

    Michelle, I have never done this with butter, but I will try it. I used to eat so much roasted garlic on weekends, that come Monday my co workers could tell that I was already there 17 floors up, when they got into the lobby elevators they smelled the garlic. i was in sales, and my boss came into my office and asked me "Are you going out on any sales calls today?" "You smell horrible!" true story..HA!

    I do this and spread it on crackers. Ritz and Club are the best in my opinion. Then add a bit of Feta cheese. Wonderful!!

    Tracy Feta sounds good with this. I just bought Stilton, and that would be good too.
