Last weekend, we were invited to hang out with friends for the evening so we wanted to bring garlic bread and a dessert (a post that is coming later in the week!). We picked up some garlic bread from Costco... but, as My Husband started thinking about making the garlic bread, he asked how to make roasted garlic.
We have one of those cute little garlic roasters... somewhere in the house. I imagine I've put it away somewhere in the back of a cabinet simply because we weren't using it much and it was taking up space. But, you know what? You don't need a special contraption to make roasted garlic!
Roasting garlic makes the flavor more mellow. You could serve it as shown in the photo or spread on smaller slices of a baguette as appetizers for a dinner party. Adding another layer of flavor by topping the bread slices with brushetta or a small slice of proscuitto or pancetta would dress it up even more.
