Roasted Garlic

roastedgarlic

I love the way Simply Recipes uses a muffin pan and individually wraps the garlic bulbs, for roasting. This would be perfect, for serving to spread over bread, at dinner, or a dinner party. (It also could bake right alongside baked potatoes.. Your oven is going to be on, anyway.)

I prefer to roast it slower, as I usually get busy and forget to take it out of the oven.

I fill the bottom of a corning ware dish or round glass baking dish, lined with long pieces of foil, with bulbs of garlic, that I’ve chopped the tops off of..

I liberally drizzle olive oil over the top.

I close up the foil, around it, to seal it.. and bake at 300-350 degrees for 2-2.5 hours. I then just turn off my oven and leave it in there. (My times and temps vary, because I usually let it ride, in the oven, with something else.. I don’t, usually, turn on my oven, just to roast garlic..)

After its cool, I transfer the whole foil packet into a freezer zipper bag and refrigerate.

It can be used to spread over bread, added to soups or stews, or thrown into a stir-fry. It doesn’t need any real cooking time, other than to get warm, and is sweet, so I use it liberally. We are big garlic fans, though.

My favorite way to use roasted garlic, is to add it to baked spaghetti, ziti, or lasagna, prior to baking.

It is divine, to use as your butter on french or italian bread, sprinkle parm cheese and parsley over the top and toast in the oven..
