The Put-on-everything Roasted Garlic

Tool Kit:

  • 2 whole heads of garlic
  • Aluminum Foil OR Parchment Paper
  • 2 teaspoons of olive oil
  • Salt & pepper

This will be both the fanciest/ most extra thing you can do while also being the easiest. Roasting your garlic before adding it to things like mashed potatoes (recipe coming soon) can really elevate a dish. Or if you just want to impress your dinner guests by going the extra mile, roasting your garlic and then putting it on the dinner table with bread to have a DIY garlic bread is always appreciated.  It takes everything in me not to eat this right out of the oven, garlic is my everything, so be warned it’s delicious.


First preheat your oven to 400 F. While the oven is preheating, cut the tops off of the garlic heads and place them each in their own small square of foil. Fold up the sides of the foil to avoid spillage. Now drizzle olive oil over the garlic heads, season with salt & pepper, and enclose each garlic into their foil homes. 

Place them each in the oven and check on them around the 15 min mark (however you should be able to smell when they are done since the whole house will smell like roasted garlic.) They should be a lovely golden color and soft to the touch. If not, put them back in and check back every 5 minutes.

Hi, I'm April and I love to eat. LOVE IT. I base my whole day around what and when my next meal is going to be. I love creating different dishes, some of which are meh and others are crave-worthy. However, I grew up in a family of people who went out to eat every night. My mother hates the very idea of cooking and uses the oven as storage. I had this desire to create, cook, and bake, but I didn't know how. So I started researching by watching cooking shows and reading every cookbook I could get my hands on and taught myself how to create the types of dishes I wanted to try but didn't want to go out and pay for. Here you will find all my favorite things to create as well as a sprinkle of some travel content. I hope to inspire you all to get out there and create and have fun in your kitchen and to travel the world and just overall eat great food.
