Easy way to make your own roasted garlic.

Roasted Garlic


  • 1 head Garlic
  • 1/2 Tbsp Oil per head


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  • Cut the top of the garlic off, 1/4 inch or so
  • Drizzle oil over the top and encase in foil
  • Cook in the oven for about an hour.


If you are cooking only 1 head of garlic, it should take just under an hour, with each new one adding around 5 minutes. It is good to check on them anyway. You are looking for a nice brown (dark caramel) color on the exposed heads.

Beware, the smell is kind of strong and it permeates.

Roasted garlic goes well on so many things. I generally substitute it into anything that uses garlic and add it as extra flavor to others.

Flatbread, roasted garlic, cambazola cheese, and reduced balsamic vinegar are an amazing combination. (Matt’s Oyster Lounge)
