Oven roasted garlic is my recipe of the day. This is a very basic utility recipe and most people know it by heart. If for some reason you are new to roasting garlic, you should find this interesting. I make it all the time!

If you read my recipes enough,  you  might discover I use roasted garlic frequently. It has a much milder flavor that raw garlic  cloves do,   so  can be perfect  for  adding in places you want a ton  of garlic flavor without the offending breath and  hot bite.

It is very easy to top the bulb, drizzle  and wrap  in  foil, tossing  it right  on the oven rack.

Yes, I use the foil since it needs to be tented anyway and why dirty another pan when you don’t need to? Then you can skin the  cloves on the opened foil and  easily dispose the  messy parts.

Easy ingredients: Garlic, oil, and foil.
3 ingredients

Place on a piece of foil and drizzle with oil.

Tent the foil up around it and toss in the oven.

Go back to the top you cut off and rescue any pieces of garlic worth saving for other uses.

Bake for 45 minutes, then cool.

Pick off excess skins and squeeze the roasted cloves out with your fingers into a small bowl.
