So perfect with a crusty baguette! Wonderful as a side to meaty entrees. I use this dish to bribe Dh into tackling his honey-do list. It's never let me down. This is an adaptation of a Rozanne Gold dish.
Remove any loose papery skins from the outside of the garlic heads; cut off the top 1/3 of the heads to open the cloves; set aside for another use; place the heads in a small baking dish, cut sides up; pour olive oil over them and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Cover the dish tightly and bake until 3/4 done, about 45 minutes; uncover and continue to bake another 15 minutes or until the cloves begin to pop out of their skins and brown.
Top each head with 1/2 ounce slice of goat cheese and broil until golden, about 1 minute; serve warm.
