    Roasted garlic is sweet and luscious, and very spreadable. Serve with good crusty bread or with crackers.

    • butter

    Prep:3min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:33min 

    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
    2. Cut aluminium foil into three 15cm (6 in) squares (large enough to wrap each garlic head). Place a knob of butter in each square of foil and place one garlic head into each square. Fold to make parcels out of each square, and arrange them in a baking dish or tray.
    3. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the garlic is soft.


    You can substitute olive oil for the butter if you prefer!

    used this recipe today, delicious  -  20 Oct 2016


    Absolutely love this stuff but couldn't give the recipe a 5 star because I didn't follow it. Use E.V.O.O. instead of butter....it is so much better, and I use a terra cotta flowerpot and base to make this in. Soak the pot in COLD water for 20 minutes and place the garlic (and pot) in the oven then turn on the oven....let the garlic bake while the oven is preheating. Then I let it bake for 30 minutes after it reached 350 degrees. This is the way I was taught to do this...and it works every time. Delicious with crackers or a dense bread. Thanks for the post.  -  18 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was really yummy and quick. In lieu of the butter, I subsituted olive oil with a dash of salt. (As suggested by a previous reviewer)  -  17 Sep 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
