Baked Garlic

There are so many uses for baked garlic, smeared over french bread or as a spread for sandwiches. Baked garlic is great in mashed potatoes, risottos, and pastas or can be mixed into salad dressings or dips. You will find so many uses, it is best to bake several heads to keep on hand. Baked garlic has a milder taste than fresh garlic.
