This is a non-recipe recipe meaning the exact amounts of ingredients are up to you! Here is what you will need: garlic, olive oil, & salt. That's it!

Preheat oven to 425°F. Peel away some of the skin of the garlic bulb, leaving enough to keep the bulb intact. Cut the top ¼ off the bulb of garlic with a sharp knife, exposing the cloves.


Put each bulb of garlic in a piece of aluminum foil. Wrap the foil around the bulb making a packet, leaving the top open. Drizzle olive oil over cloves, & sprinkle with salt. Seal top of foil packet.


Add foil packets to a baking dish lined with foil. Bake 45-75 minutes. Check garlic cloves around 30 minutes to see their progress. Garlic is done roasting when cloves are golden brown & softened.


When garlic is finished, remove from the oven & allow to cool enough to handle. Squeeze the roasted garlic cloves from the outer skin. Use gloves for this, as the roasted garlic can be sticky.


This recipe pairs perfectly with Roasted Garlic Alfredo Sauce. The roasted garlic adds a rich flavor to this sauce making it extra special & perfect for garlic lovers!
