  4. Place garlic, cut side up, in center of a 10-inch square cut from a double thickness of heavy aluminum foil.
  5. Bring foil up around the garlic bulb to form a bowl.
  6. Sprinkle garlic with rosemary and basil over bulb and add 1 teaspoon olive oil and ½ teaspoon butter on each bulb.
  7. Close the foil completely by twisting the tops and place in oven under medium heat or on rack of uncovered grill for 30 minutes- this may all be prepared 8 hours in advance- cover and chill.
