• 2 heads garlic, unpeeled
  • olive oil

Rub garlic heads with oil; wrap each in heavy foil. Cook over hot coals, turning three or four times, until cloves are very soft when lightly pressed, and outer skins are browned, about 30-45 minutes. Unwrap and arrange on serving plate with a thin sharp knife for removing cloves from head of garlic.
Squeeze each clove gently to release creamy garlic; serve smeared on slices of French bread.

Serves 4


A perfect and contemporary appetizer straight from the grill: Roasted garlic on slices of French bread. Thinly slice a baguette and lightly toast the slices on the grill as the garlic roasts.
