  • whole heads of garlic or peeled garlic cloves
  • olive oil


  1. Preheat the oven to 400° for 30-40 minute bake or 325° for 50-60 minute bake.

For whole heads of garlic

  1. Cut the top ¼ to ½ inch off the heads to expose the tops of all cloves.

  2. Place heads cut side up in the middle of a sheet of foil large enough to completely enclose garlic.

  3. Drizzle with just enough olive oil to rub into the tops of the cloves, wrap tightly and bake in any baking dish according to oven temperature. Garlic will be a very pleasing golden color when done.

For peeled garlic cloves

  1. Peel garlic cloves, place them on a sheet of foil, drizzle with oil, wrap the foil to enclose the cloves, and bake in a baking dish according to oven temperature.


  1. Roasted garlic can be stored in a container in the fridge for about a week. If you make large quantities I recommend freezing it.
