Crock Pot Roasted Garlic

READY IN: 8hrs 5mins
Recipe by Mirj2338

This is a great method for roasting garlic, so it can be ready when you start cooking in the evening. I've even done it overnight and started cooking in the morning. Roasted garlic goes great with mashed potatoes, on pasta, or simply spread on crusty bread.

Thank you Mirjam for this ingenious recipe! I needed some roasted garlic for a recipe I was doing, and I didn't want to heat up the oven in this heat! I then remembered I had stored this in my cookbook. Put this going last night before bed and I woke up to the most wonderful smell drifting from my kitchen! The garlic got to the right "mushy" consistensy and really mellowed in flavor!


  1. Place the 6 heads of garlic on one layer of aluminum foil.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Fold foil loosely around garlic.
  4. Place in crock pot and cook on low for 8 hours.
  5. Squeeze garlic out of skins and add whatever floats your boat.
