Roasted garlic is one of our favorite treats. We spread it on small hard breads and crackers, use it in salad dressings and marinades, we even add it to omelets.
I have been making roasted garlic using a whole head of garlic for years but only recently started experimenting with the pre-peeled garlic. Pre-peeled garlic is usually sold in the refrigerated section of the produce section at any grocery store.
I used the Trader Joe’s brand for this recipe. I have used the jumbo tub from Costco for larger amounts and parties. Sometimes it comes in a jar or tub and other times it is in shrink packaging. Just look around your shop or ask the produce person.
At first, I was a little unsure of the “pop of flavor” or “mellow bite” the pre-peeled would have. I was pleasantly surprised at the delicious flavor, smooth texture and ease of working with pre-peeled garlic.
What You Will Need:
1 package of pre-peeled garlic
2. Fill a oven proof ramekin 3/4 full with garlic, sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper and generously drizzle with olive oil.
