How to Make Roasted Garlic, the easy way!

How to make roasted garlic the easy way! Are you looking for the easiest method to make Roasted Garlic? Take a look here, this method is foolproof and requires no special equipment!


Who wants a foolproof way to roast garlic? Once upon a time, I had a cute terra cotta garlic roaster. It held one perfect head of garlic. But, I did not use it. Why? Well you see, it only held one head of garlic and the frugal side of me was not going to heat up the oven to roast just that one head of garlic...


Enter the muffin tin. Turns out, it is perfect for roasting garlic. You can load up the tin with 6 heads of garlic, plus they stay upright. Obviously, if you need more than six heads of Roasted Garlic, grab a 12 cup muffin tin. Roasted garlic is always a delicious way to eat more garlic, which is also very good for us.


To use the Roasted Garlic: let cool enough to handle the heads without getting burned. Carefully break the head of garlic apart to separate the individual cloves. When ready to use squeeze the roasted garlic out from the papery skin. With all that delicious roasted garlic, I would also like to offer some suggestions for use:

  • Warm roasted garlic is delicious as a "spread" in place of butter, on your favorite crusty bread.
  • Make a delicious and frugal Breadcrumb Pasta Sauce. Chop the peeled Roasted Garlic cloves and toss with hot pasta, additional olive oil, and dry bread crumbs, and a little fresh parsley if available (don't worry, it is good without also!). Pass Parmesan cheese at the table for each to use as desired.
  • Mash some Roasted Garlic cloves into soft butter, spread on cut bread, broil until golden brown, heavenly!
  • You may also freeze the individual cloves of Roasted Garlic on a tray, then transfer them to a storage container or freezer bag. Convenient Roasted Garlic as needed, with no waste. 

I think you get the idea, it is really easy to enjoy Roasted Garlic, so get roasting already!

  • fresh garlic 
  • olive oil
You will also need the following:
  • 6 cup muffin tin, for a small batch
OR
  • 12 cup muffin tin, for a larger batch!
