Roasted Garlic

We had some company over yesterday for pizza making night and I made roasted garlic to accompany the other pizza toppings I prepared.  I love roasted garlic.  The preparation takes about 5 minutes so it's super easy to make but makes a huge flavor impact to whatever you put it in.  Roasted garlic is very versatile because you can put in it so many things.....you can put it in mashed potatoes, pasta, sandwiches, salad dressings, or you can smear roasted garlic on bread just like butter and eat it like that.

Recipe

Ingredients
Whole garlic bulbs
Extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt
Freshly ground pepper

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Cut 1/4 inch off the tops of the cloves with a knife.  Place the bulbs in a baking pan with the open side up.  Season with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Cover the baking pan tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes or 'til the garlic becomes golden brown and tender.


Cut the tops of the cloves off like the picture shown below.


Cover the baking pan with aluminum foil.


This is what the garlic bulbs should look like when they are done roasting.  This is so yummy....
