I haven't tried this yet but it sounds interesting. Recipe from garlic lovers cookbook. I'm going to try them soon.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Separate bulbs and peel garlic.
  2. Drop cloves into boiling water and when boiling resumes, blanch for about 3-4 minutes. The longer the cloves cook the milder their flavor, but don't overcook or they will be mushy.
  3. Drain and pour cold water over to cool.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare batter by combining biscuit mix, egg, beer, parsley and salt.
  5. Heat vegetable oil in deep pot or fry cooker.
  6. Dip each cooked clove of garlic into batter and fry until golden brown in color.
  7. Remove from oil and drain on paper towel.
  8. Serve Hot.

I love these. I had The Garlic Lover's Cookbook years ago and it was lost in our many moves. I was thrilled to find the recipe here. I made these last weekend. My husband threatened to make me sleep on the couch the next time I made them....I think they just might be worth it.....They are realy good dipped in ranch dressing.

Garlic lovers' heaven! The only fiddly part - as always - was peeling the garlic. After that, these really were fun to make and just SO delicious, SO worth the effort! They would make a great appetiser or a side dish with pretty well anything. On this occasion, because I like the idea of them with a salad, we ate them - as the tastiest morsels imaginable -with toni gifford's Mango and Chicken Salad With Buttermilk Dressing Recipe #115224. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
