Roasted Garlic (3)

Who doesn’t love Roasted Garlic?  You can eat it plain, spread it on Pizza Dough, add it to Hummus, Salsa, Mashed potatoes, spread it on Crackers, top a Baked Potato, add to Sandwiches, Vegetable Dishes, or whatever your little heart desires.  Bob loves it, and I bought him this Terra Cotta Garlic Roaster (you can find them for $16.00).  He used to use a baking sheet, but much prefers this method.  Here’s how he does it:


Whole garlic cloves

Olive oil

Optional Seasonings:  Salt, Pepper, Thyme (or whatever you’d like)



Many people cut the top off an entire head of garlic, pour a few teaspoons Olive Oil on each, cover, and roast cut side up for at 350° F for 50-60 minutes, depending on how tender you want them.  You can roast them at up to 400° F in case you have a hotter oven going and want to stick some garlic in also.

Bob sometimes likes to break the cloves apart and put in a medium/large covered bowl, and then shakes them vigorously for about 20 seconds.  Voilà!  No skins!  You may need to pick some of the skins off or shake them again.  So easy!

He places individual cloves in the Garlic Roaster, adds a bit of seasoning and Olive Oil, then bakes in the Toaster Oven at 300° F covered for 60 min, and then 20 minutes with cover removed for 20 minutes.  Again, it depends on how well you want them done.

You can store them in a glass jar with Olive Oil.
