  • 1 bulb fresh garlic
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil


  • Remove the outer layer of the garlic bulb, to expose the cloves in their individual shells.
  • Cut off about 1/4″ of the top of the bulb.
  • Place garlic bulbs in the prepared aluminum foil squares and place on a baking sheet.
  • Drizzle about 2 teaspoons of olive oil on each bulb.
  • Bring the edges of the foil together and close the bulb inside.

  • Remove the sheet from the oven and let the foil packets cool until safe to the touch.
  • Remove the bulbs from foil.
  • The cloves are soft and should pop out from their shells with a help of a small spoon or butter knife.
