8 Roasting Garlic, the EASY Way

Roasted garlic imparts a deeper, sweeter, and more mellow flavor that I have grown to love.  Typically, whole heads of garlic are roasted in an oven that can take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour.

This method, found at King Arthur Flour, takes only around 20 minutes and yeilds more garlic than the whole head method.
Ready?

First, break apart your head of garlic into separate cloves.  Trim the woody end and discard.

Place the cut garlic cloves in a bowl and drizzle some olive oil, giving it a stir to lightly coat them.



Place the oil drizzled cloves onto a baking sheet and stick them into a preheated 325ºF oven.

20 minutes later, this is what you'll get....

Look at those cute little guys, busting outta their skins ~


I freeze the roasted garlic in their skins, so they are ready to use any time!



When I'm ready to use them, I simply slide the skins off, mash them, and they are good to go.



Roasted garlic is great in mashed potatoes, salad dressing, turkey, soups, pasta and in bread!



What is your favorite way of using garlic?
