“OOMPY” pick: Roasted Garlic

From: Simply Recipes

Mmmm…I just LOVE roasted garlic!!  I think I am going to roast some garlic to make Roasted Garlic Flatbread…YUMMY!!

Items needed

  • Garlic bulbs
  • Olive oil
  • Foil


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin, leaving the skins of the individual cloves intact.
  3. Using a knife, cut off 1/4 to a 1/2 inch of the top of cloves, exposing the individual cloves of garlic.
  4. Place the garlic heads in a baking pan; muffin pans work well for this purpose.
  5. Drizzle a couple teaspoons of olive oil over each head, using your fingers to make sure the garlic head is well coated.
  6. Cover with aluminum foil.
  7. Bake at 400°F for 30-35 minutes, or until the cloves feel soft when pressed.
  8. Allow the garlic to cool enough so you can touch it without burning yourself.
  9. Use a small small knife cut the skin slightly around each clove.
  10. Use a cocktail fork or your fingers to pull or squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins.
  11. Eat as is or mash with a fork and use for cooking.
  12. Can be spread over warm French bread, mixed with sour cream for a topping for baked potatoes, or mixed in with Parmesan and pasta.
