Roasted garlic is one of the yummiest things ever (next to bacon!).  It’s simple and if you’ve never tried making, you should!  Use it on pizza (mashed or whole cloves), use it to make roasted garlic hummus, mash it and mix with butter to make the best ever garlic bread. The possibilities are endless!

Ingredients: whole bulb of garlic; olive oil; salt; pepper

How to Roast Garlic:

Pre-heat oven to 375°.  Pull out a square of aluminum foil then double it before you tear it off.  Cut the top off a bulb of garlic (leaving the bulb with the peelings, skin, etc. on).  Place it in the center of the aluminum foil, drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.
