Roasted Garlic Bread

  • 12 whole garlic bulbs
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 loaf Italian bread (Be sure to count the carbohydrates of the bread)

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Cut the bottom off each garlic bulb and place bulb on a square of aluminum foil. Drizzle with 1/2 teaspoon olive oil. Seal and place in a shallow roasting pan. Repeat procedure until all of the garlic bulbs are wrapped in foil. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until garlic is very soft. (Garlic can be roasted up to 5 days ahead; serve cold or reheated.)

When ready to serve, unwrap and arrange garlic bulbs, cut side up, among the breads. (Leftover garlic cloves can be stored in the fridge in self-sealing plastic bags for use another time.)

  • Yields: 1 loaf
