Mmm. Roasted garlic, surprisingly, is sweet to the taste and delicious on baguette slices as an appetizer.
Leave the head whole and cut off the tip of the head, exposing the cloves. Allow one-half to one head per person. Place in a baking dish or wrap in aluminum foil, sprinkle with olive oil or pat with butter, and season with a little salt and pepper. Bake at 350 degrees until very soft and tender (about 45 minutes to 1 hour). The roasted garlic cloves can be easily squeezed from their skins and spread with a knife. Simple and scrumptious.
