Roasting it is so easy and you can use it in so many things. I use it in turkey burgers, hummus, combine it with Hellmans as a sandwich spread, rub it under the skin of a chicken before roasting, and it's great smeared on toasted baguette slices.
I like to do four bulbs at a time. You will get about 1/2 cups of mashed roasted garlic and it keeps in the refrigerator well.
Slice the tops off of each bulb. Place on a piece of heavy duty aluminum foil and drizzle 1 Tbsp. of olive oil over the tops.
Wrap the foil up and around the garlic and place in a small baking dish. Bake in a 400° F. oven for an hour and 15 minutes.
Open the foil pouch and allow to cool to the touch.
