  • 1 head garlic
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil


  • Heat the oven to 400°F. Peel off the loose, papery outer layers on the outside of as many heads of garlic as desired, leaving the head intact.
  • Cut 1/4 to 1/3 inch off the tops of the heads leaving the head intact. Place the head on a small piece of foil, large enough to wrap up and around. Drizzle olive oil all over, especially into the exposed cuts.

  • Wrap the foil up and around the garlic. Place the garlic on a baking sheet and roast for 45 minute to 1 and half hours depending on how caramelized you want it. The longer it roasts, the more brown, sweet and caramelized it becomes.
