Roasted Garlic

  1. Cut off the top 1/4 of garlic head. Wrap in foil. Drizzle one tablespoon olive oil over top and close up aluminum foil. Bake 45 minutes at 375° or until cloves are soft. Allow to cool. 


  1. Boil potatoes and a pinch of salt until softened. Drain.
  2. Place potatoes in large bowl.
  3. Squeeze out desired amount of roasted garlic clove into potatoes. (I use the whole head of garlic.)

  5. Mix on medium-low to desired consistency. 
  6. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Enjoy.
