  • 4 Large garlic bulbs
  • 1 Tbs. Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
Main Ingredient(s): Garlic


  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Remove any loose outer layers of garlic skin (the papery outer layer) from the bulb.
  • Turn bulb on its side. Cut off the top 1/2 inch from bulb, just exposing the tops of the cloves.
  • Cut off a piece of aluminum foil, big enough to be able to loosely wrap the 4 bulbs. Place bulbs in the center of foil, cut side up. Drizzle with olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bring sides of foil up and seal to make a bundle. Place on sheet pan in case of leakage and bake for 30-45 minutes until garlic is tender and top has caramelized.
