Roasted garlic in the oven is pretty simple. Set your oven to 400°F. Slice the tops off of your head of garlic and place your garlic heads in aluminum foil.

That’s literally all you do to make this recipe work.

It’s great to use in the way mentioned above, I also could literally just eat it with a spoon, it’s that good.
