A super easy way to roast garlic. Just wrap it in aluminium foil with a dab of butter then roast for about 30 minutes in a moderate oven. Enjoy on crackers or bread.


Serves: 8 

  • 3 medium heads garlic
  • butter

Preparation:3min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:33min 

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Cut aluminium foil into three 15cm squares - large enough to wrap each garlic head. Place a knob of butter in each square of foil and place one garlic head into each square. Fold to make parcels out of each square then arrange them in a baking dish or tray.
  3. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the garlic is soft.


You can substitute olive oil for the butter if you prefer!

Something else. Absolutely love this stuff but couldn't give the recipe a 5 star because I didn't follow it. I use a terra cotta flowerpot and base to make this in. Soak the pot in COLD water for 20 minutes and place the garlic (and pot) in the oven then turn on the oven....let the garlic bake while the oven is preheating. Then I let it bake for 30 minutes. This is the way I was taught to do this...and it works every time. Delicious with crackers or a dense bread. Thanks for the post. - 08 Oct 2008


My husband and I really enjoyed this. I made one for each of us and we still fought over who was getting more. ; ) I cut off a bit off the bottom of the bulbs (the pointy end) before cooking. It was a lot easier to squeeze the garlic out the end. I think the cooking time needs to be extended to 35-40 minutes. My garlic was still a little tough. But, overall very easy and delicious. - 08 Oct 2008
