DIRECTIONS

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