It’s such a simple thing that adds such awesome flavor to just about anything!
Preheat oven to 400.
Peel off flaky paper off the outside of the garlic, but leave the cloves attached. Trim off the top of the head of garlic and place on some tin foil.
Drizzle with olive oil. You could even get fancy and throw in some extra herbs or spices, depending on your game plan for the garlic.
Seal up foil.
And pop that sucker in the oven for 30-35 minutes, or until the cloves are nice and soft.
Let cool and squeeze out the cloves.
They should really ooze right out.
I used this particular head of garlic to make some Roasted Garlic Flaky Biscuits by For the Love of Cooking to serve with the big ‘ol pot of chili I had made up.
I just plopped the garlic in and broke it up with the whisk. The biscuits were a huge hit.
And as usual she was a huge helper.
