My family loves garlic, especially roasted garlic, and what better use can it have than spread over toasted bread? It’s thick and creamy, and if you add a slab of of it to just about anything, you won’t be able to stop eating it!
*Pro tip: Use an Air Fryer to roast the garlic. I hate using the oven for something so small. It just seems like a waste of energy. Using the Air Fryer is my new favorite way to roast, toast, bake, and fry.
Roasted Garlic Toast
- 6 heads of garlic
- 1 French or sourdough bread loaf
- Heat the oven to 400 degrees.
- Slice the heads of the garlic off about 1/4 inch from the top. Drizzle with olive oil and wrap each one in a pocket of aluminum foil. Leave a little air pocket to allow the garlic to steam.
- Place on a baking sheet or pan and put in the oven for 30 minutes. You can tell they are done when the outsides of the garlic are golden brown but not burned.
- When they are done, carefully open the packets of foil and place the garlic heads on a cutting board or in a bowl. They will be extremely hot, so let them cool for 15 minutes or so.
- Once the garlic is cool, squeeze the garlic out the top into a bowl. Add a pinch of salt and stir it all together. You will have a thick paste of garlic when you’re done.
- Heat the oven to broil. Slice the French bread into 1 inch pieces, brush both sides with olive oil, and place in the oven. Watch this carefully, as it can burn quickly. (I’m notorious for burning things when broiling.) Turn over when the tops are slightly brown and toast the other side until golden.
- Lather the tops of the garlic bread with the roasted garlic, and serve.
