Excellent ideas, Garlic is sooo good when eroasted. I use the microwave, a glass measuring cup a handful of peeled Garlic cloves, pick off the woody part , cover with small microwave safe dish. 1-2 min on high power. Olive oil is good also with this or just plain. Stick with tooth pick and enjoy.
On the grill. Put peeled Garlic cloves into a small foil baking pan, drizzle with your favorite oil, sprinkle some Italian seasoning (salt free). Wrap in foil, set on grill near fire. Roast 5-10min. When adding meat to grill open foil and move to back of grill, garlic wil have a smokey flavor. Spread onto bread, or just pile ontop a fershly grilled steak, slab of fish, pork, chicken.
I have bad luck with baked/roasted garlic it seems. With this one, I dont think the little garlic had nearly enough time to cook. It took forever to get the garlic soft. After about 50 mintues, I took it out and it -was- tasty! I guess I'll just have to raise the temp. slightly and let it cook for more time. Thanks!
this was delicious! We spread it on toasted bread and on pizza dough before making pizza. One suggestion: The time amount is WAY off. It needs about 45 minutes in the oven to get a soft, clove and mild, sweet flavor.
I thought it turned out great, after I cooked it twice as long. I took a few and mashed it with butter, pepper, and garlic salt and added a little to popcorn. It was actually verrryy good. Also, I know an easy way to get the garlic stench off your hands: rinse your hands under cool water while rubbing a metal utensil (butter knife or spoon). Sounds silly, but I swear it works!
Who knew this was so easy?? I used my roasted garlic in the "Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe" instead of raw garlic - to die for!! You could definitely get away with alot less oil! Really terrific to know how to do this!
The time was way off for me too. I ended up slow roasting it at 250 for about 50 minutes and it turned out soft and delicious.
The timing depends on the size of garlic head you are using, so be sure to poke a clove with a toothpick at the minimum recommended time and every 5-7 minutes thereafter until it's as soft as you like it.
i just felt like the temperature wasn't high enough. after 20 minutes, the garlic didn't look cooked at all. i let it cook about 20 more minutes, and it still wasn't very roasted. i ate it anyway b/c i was tired of waiting. but next time, i think i'll try a much higher temperature.
I normally use Method 1, but tried the 2nd methold this time. It worked very well. I didn't know that you can roast garlic this way. Thanks for the post.
