CAROLYN’S COMPOSITIONS

THREE GARLIC RECIPES

Garlic_slice

WHOLE BAKED GARLIC HEAD

1 large garlic head
Melted butter or olive oil
Sliced French bread (or, fresh home-made whole wheat bread)

Trim about ¼ to ½ inch from top of garlic head with a sharp knife.

Place garlic, cut side up, in a small shallow baking pan (or, if you are lucky like I am, a garlic roaster)

Dribble 2-3 tablespoons of melted butter or olive oil over the top

Bake at 3500 F. about 45 minutes or until garlic head is soft and lightly browned (I tend to stick a couple of filled garlic roasters in the oven when my husband Monte is baking his bread…or if the oven is on for some other reason). If not using a garlic roaster, baste the garlic heads a couple of times while they are cooking.

Toast bread and brush with melted butter.

To serve, carefully detach cloves of garlic, squeeze pulp onto bread and spread.

Makes 2-3 servings per garlic head.
