Roasted garlic is so easy to make! I don't even use my regular oven unless I am roasting a lot. I just use my toaster oven set on convection bake. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
All you do is take your head of garlic and slice a little off the top like this.
Drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper, if desired.
Wrap it in the foil like this. Here I am roasting a lot because I was attempting to make Roasted Garlic Soup. I wasn't thrilled with the results of this recipe which is why you haven't seen it yet.
Roast in the preheated oven (or toaster oven) for 30 minutes.
Mmm...doesn't that look amazing?! I LOVE Garlic! DH....not so much. I usually have to make sure I do this when I know he won't be home for a bit so I can air out the house. He likes garlic, but not the strong smell.
Once it's cooled enough to handle just squeeze the cloves into a bowl. This is my favorite part because I get to lick my fingers when I'm done. :)
There ya go! Roasted garlic. Super easy and great for recipes like Roasted Garlic Grits....we'll get to that recipe one day.... Enjoy!
