For someone that loves garlic as much as I do, I need to have a simple and easy go to roasted garlic recipe.  I learned this tip a few years ago and have used it ever since for roasting garlic.  It’s simple and easy and makes clean up a breeze!




  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin, leaving the skins of the individual cloves intact.
  3. Using a knife, cut off 1/4 to a 1/2 inch of the top of cloves, exposing the individual cloves of garlic.

    Cut off the tops of the bulbs and place in the middle of the foil sheets

  4. Cut 4 sheets of tin foil into 6×6 inch squares.  Place one garlic head in the middle of each sheet of foil and curl up the sides to form a bowl.
  5. Drizzle a couple tsp of oil over each head, using your fingers to make sure the garlic head is well coated.

    Seal up foil around garlic and place in muffin tin

  6. Cover the garlic bulbs completely with foil and place each ‘foil ball’ into a muffin cup.
  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the cloves feel soft when pressed.
  8. Allow the garlic to cool enough so you can touch it without burning yourself. Using a small knife cut the skin slightly around each clove. Use a cocktail fork or your fingers to pull or squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins.


I love eating roasted garlic right out of the oven but it’s also great as a spread.  Just mash with a fork and spread over warm whole wheat French bread or Baked Pita Chips.

      Hi Chuck,

      Roasted garlic is one of my favorite things. I could literally eat it as is but it’s wonderful as a topper on bread or, one of my favorite ways, on a burger. YUM!
