1 head (bulb) garlic olive oil
Preheat an oven to 350°. Peel off the excess papery skin from the garlic head, leaving enough peel behind to cover the cloves and hold the head together.
For easy removal of garlic later, you can cut off the tip of each clove, but this step is purely optional and something to do if you want to save your diners the effort.
Put the garlic in a small baking dish or other oven-proof container – a piece of foil crimped up at the edges works just fine. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Sprinkle with pepper too, if you like. Cover loosely with aluminum foil.
Bake the garlic until it’s very tender and evenly browned, about 30 minutes. Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.
Makes one head Roasted Garlic.
This is a great side dish with a steak, mashing in potatoes for two, or tossing with a dinner salad for just the two of you!
