Roasted Garlic

My daughter is about as crazy about garlic as Walt is. More so than I, these 2 will eat it straight up! They crave it? Be careful when you bite into a pizza they have ordered too... OH man is it garlic'd up!
I wish she and her family were coming for the 4th. Maybe Heather will bring her baby girl over for the fireworks? It could happen?

Tonight I am making it simple, some Ground Round Steaks on the Q, a spinach salad, and some crusty bread:) Roasted garlic makes a very tasty spread for crusty bread. It is also yummy in mashed potatoes, as a dipping plate with balsamic, or a soup base, but I really am trying to limit carb consumption, so when I want bread, I wont make a starch. Awesome for your favorite Bruschetta recipes too!

4 Whole Heads Of Garlic
1/2 Cup Olive Oil
Salt & Pepper

Remove the outer leaves of the heads of garlic, keeping the bulbs intact. Cut off the top 1/2 inch of the bulbs. Place the bulbs in a small baking pan, and drizzle with the olive oil. Fill the pan with water or broth until the bulbs are half covered. Cover with aluminum foil, and bake in a 450 degree F. oven for around one hour, or until the garlic is soft. Season to taste.
