Simply delicious! Roast whole bulbs of garlic; squeeze a roasted garlic clove over toasted bread when making bruschetta, or use into mashed potatoes, or anything else that needs a garlic flavour boost.
This recipe is okay. The best recipe is to cut the pointy end of the bulb of garlic so that the tops of the cloves are exposed. Sprinkle with fresh ground black pepper and drizzle 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Let the oil soak in until the oven is pre-heated to 350 degrees. Using your finger, spread the oil around the exposed bulbs and the upper part of the skin. On a foil-lined baking sheet, turn the cloves CUT SIDE DOWN and bake for 1 hour. Remove from oven, let cool for 20 or 30 minutes, then serve with crusty bread, goat cheese (or some other good cheese) and kalamata olives. The presentation is beautiful since the cloves of garlic are perfectly carmelized and haven't burned from being face down. - 10 Sep 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Roasted garlic is sooo good, I changed a few things with mine and it was excellent. I cut off the pointy tops and drizzled olive oil over the exposed garlic and added freshly ground cracked pepper. Then I placed them on a piece of foil and folded it around the garlic, making a "foil tent" so that the garlic is completely enclosed. I put them in a 350 degree oven for about an hour or until soft to the touch. I served mine with thinly sliced crusty french bread and goat cheese. (spread the garlic on the bread and then some goat cheese) ~ you and your guests will NOT be disappointed! - 01 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
