This easy roasted garlic is delicious, so simple to make, and a great addition to any recipe. Some people even like to just pop the pieces of roasted garlic right into their mouth! Try it, you may be surprised how delicious it is! I first made this roasted garlic to add to homemade mashed potatoes. It gave it a sweet, garlicky flavor that was so scrumptious.

You could also add this roasted garlic to aioli, hummus, salads, and just about any other recipe you can think of!
