    Steve_G's Note:

    Roasting the garlic mellows the flavor and give natural, caramelized, sweetness.

    Serves: 16



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      Clean dirt and roots from garlic, place garlic in the center of a 10x10-inch sheet of aluminum foil.
    3. 3
      Pour olive oil over garlic, wrap with foil and roast in oven for 60 minutes.
    4. 4
      While garlic is roasting, cut butter into chunks and place in a medium bowl--this will expedite the softening process.
    5. 5
      Once butter is softened, add sugar and beat with a hand mixer until fluffy.
    6. 6
      Garlic should be soft when you remove it from the oven, peel back foil and let cool till you can handle it.
    7. 7
      Pull garlic head apart and squeeze the garlic out of the cloves into another small bowl.
    8. 8
      Allow to cool till warm to the touch.
    9. 9
      mash roasted garlic paste with a fork, mix with butter and beat for a few moments until combined.
    10. 10
      Lasts several weeks in the fridge!
    11. 11
      Slather this on Italian bread and place under the broiler until lightly browned for the best garlic bread that you've ever had.
    12. 12
    13. 13
      Add some crushed red pepper for a bit of zing.
    14. 14
      Add some fresh herbs for a greener taste (but use it within a day).
    15. 15
      Add some Italian seasoning.

      The sugar is SO not needed. I found that after all my work of roasting and obtaining the roasted garlic, I only ruined it with the sugared butter. Tasted like garlic butter with a ton of sugar. Sorry, but absolutely will not make again.

      The basic recipe is good. My changes were adding 1 tbl. sugar (will pare that down to 1 tsp. next time), 1 tbl. garlic powder and 1 tsp. Italian Seasoning (will put in 2 tsp. next time). My brother fell in love with this. Last night he spread it over some baked cod and he said it turned a boring piece of fish into a five star restaurant fish. Thanks so much for the great basic recipe!
