Roasted Garlic


This is an old family staple when I was growing up. I am actually surprised how many people don't know about this one. Its so easy and always seems to make any dish look super fancy.
Olive oil
Preheat oven to 350-400 degrees. I usually just end up doing whatever temperature my other food is being cooked at. Its not really an exact number necessary type of dish.
Next, take your foil and make a little bowl with it by folding up the edges. Add a little bit of olive oil to make a thin layer on the bottom. Cut your garlic so that 1/3 of the top is exposed. Place the open garlic side upside down in the oil. Wrap the foil over the garlic to make a seal. Bake for about 40-60 minutes depending on your temperature, until the garlic is soft. Check by sticking a knife into one of the cloves. To serve, place a small butter knife beside the garlic and let your guests pull out each clove and spread on a cracker.
