Love garlic? Already baking something in the oven? Try this simple garlic spread recipe given to me by my foodie friend Jerald!
You can spread it on bread or add it any recipe like soups, sauces or stews for a strong roasted garlic flavor.
- 1 head of garlic
- Milk/heavy cream – about 1-2 tbsp.
Cut to top off the head of garlic, just enough to expose each nub of garlic. Place in a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil (or a small baking dish with a lid). Form a bowl with the aluminum and add the milk or heavy cream. Crumple over the foil to make a tight package.
Add to an oven that’s heated from anywhere between 325-375 degrees. Let bake for about 30 minutes.
Carefully open the foil package. Voila! The garlic should be cooked thoroughly to a nice golden color and all the milk/cream should be gone.
The skin should be easy to remove. Remove all the skin, and put the cooked garlic in a small dish. Add a pinch of salt and mash with a spoon until smooth and delicious. Enjoy!
