Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin, leaving the skins of
the individual cloves intact. Using a knife, cut off 1/4 to a 1/2 inch of
the top of cloves, exposing the individual cloves of garlic.
Place the garlic heads in a baking pan; muffin pans work well for this
purpose. Drizzle a couple teaspoons of olive oil over each head, using your
fingers to make sure the garlic head is well coated. Cover with aluminum
foil. Bake at 400°F for 30-35 minutes, or until the cloves feel soft when
Allow the garlic to cool enough so you can touch it without burning

Use a cocktail fork or your fingers to pull or squeeze the roasted garlic
cloves out of their skins.
Eat as is (I love straight roasted garlic) or mash with a fork and use for
