Roasted garlic has a sweet, less pungent taste than regular garlic. It can be served next to your favorite meat dish or spread on warm, fresh bread.
1. Heat oven to 450 degrees.
2. Peel off outer layer making sure to keep cloves intact (it will be hard to peel the bottom part but you can leave that on). Slice off the top revealing the cloves. See picture.
2. Brush with olive oil.
3. Wrap in aluminum foil and place in oven for one hour.
4. Remove from oven and check to make sure it is soft. Squeeze out garlic and enjoy.
