We bought elephant garlic. Then chopped the top off of it. Put it in a ceramic, oven safe dish. Drizzled it with olive oil and a touch of balsamic vinegar (next time more vinegar!). Then we baked it for about an hour at 375. Now, if we had used regular garlic, it probably would have only taken 45 minutes. Then we took the garlic out and spread it onto toasted Italian bread. It spread like butta!
We had some leftover the next day and thought about adding cheese to it...mmm. Good idea, we thought. So, we bought the mix of parmesan, romano, and asiago cheeses and sprinkled it on top of the toasted bread after we spread the garlic on. Then we put it in the oven and broiled for 10 minutes to melt the cheese. Wow, we had a great idea. It was fabulous and super easy. A definite improvement on garlic bread for spaghetti night. Or any other night!
We hope that you love it as much as we did!
