I roast peeled garlic, then put it in the blender, and then store in my fridge!

I don't know how this showed up as submitted by me. I wish I had been smart enough to think of it. I just found it on here and saved it to my recipe box. So I can't take credit for it.

This is a "must have" for my fridge! I use it in mashed & twice-baked potatoes, on cauliflowerettes when roasting them, in cauliflower purée (used instead of potatoes), in my homemade roasted garlic spread for bread (soft marg & roasted garlic - mix, form into a tube using plastic wrap, seal end, put in fridge!) My fridge is never without roasted garlic!

This looked so good. I definitely have to put it on my "to do" list. I love that you can make extra and freeze. Garlic mashed potatoes and garlic bread are my favorites.

I recently ate at a seafood restaurant on the coast that served fresh bread and a roasted garlic spread made of an entire head of roasted garlic, butter, and parmesan cheese. Now I know how to duplicate that recipe!
