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.

Generously drizzle the garlic with olive oil, sprinkle with salt, and then close the foil and  bake for 45 to 60 minutes until the garlic is jammy, soft, and  a bit golden brown in color.

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.

Keep in mind, there aren’t any measurements for this recipe. You don’t need them. Just do what you feel. The important part is getting each head of garlic coated in olive oil and face up in your foil packet.
