Baked Garlic


  • Garlic Heads
  • Butter
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • Olive Oil
  • Crusty French Bread
  • Goat cheese


Set the garlic heads in a baking dish, using 1 head per person, and top each with 1 tablespoon butter. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and drizzle with olive oil. Place in a preheated 250 degree oven for 30 minutes, then baste and add just enough water to fill the pan bottom. Cover and bake another 1-1 1/2 hours or until the cloves are tender. Serve with fresh crusty bread and a good goat cheese of choice. Each person squeezes the soft garlic out of its skin and spreads on the bread (with or without the cheese).
