So simple and always a big hit!  Serve as an appetizer with crackers and a warm, sliced baguette.  Delicious!!


Garlic – Roasted

4 heads of garlic  (for 6-8 people)
olive oil
salt and pepper

Cut top off each head.  Place each head on a doubled square of aluminum foil.  Drizzle each head with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.  Wrap foil around each head.  Place on a small sheet pan and roast in a 400 degree F. oven for 1 hour.  Unwrap heads and place on serving tray.  Guests can peel a clove from the head and squeeze it onto their cracker or bread.
