Roasted Garlic adds a completely different layer of flavor to your dishes.  Think warm, nutty & creamy

We keep a jar of this in our fridge at all times for use in pan sauces & pastas, tossed on pizza or even as a delicious spread on a baguette

I like to buy the pre-peeled garlic that many grocery stores sell by the ounce.  I generally buy two 8 oz containers at a time – one to roast and one to use chopped, sliced or grated in recipes

But feel free to use whole heads of garlic that you peel the skins off of yourself

Start by pre-heating your oven to 375 degrees

Place the cloves from 4 heads of garlic, peeled,  in an oven safe dish; sprinkle with about a teaspoon of black pepper, a teaspoon of kosher salt and about 2 tablespoons of olive oil

Cover tightly with foil

Place in oven for about 30 – 40 minutes until garlic becomes soft and golden brown

Store in a glass container with the olive oil from the pan in the fridge for up to 2 weeks

Perfect addition to our Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes!  Try them out!
