Roasted garlic has a million and one uses. You can add it as an ingredient to any recipe to give it a pungent kick, put it in your car as an air freshener or smear it on your body and walk through a dark alley at night. Whatever floats your creepy little boat. If you aren’t roasting your garlic before using it, fucking do it. It enhances the natural flavor and gives your dish a rich-ass, slow-cooked taste.
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Remove that shitty, irritating outer layer of paper from the head of garlic. Cut off the end of the head of garlic about 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch to expose the garlic cloves inside. Place each head on a separate small piece of aluminum foil. and add the olive oil and Italian seasoning. Fold the aluminum foil around the head of garlic.
Place your new aluminum foil balls on a baking sheet or in a muffin tin and throw them in the oven for 35 - 40 minutes. You can roast the garlic longer if you prefer a richer flavor.
