Do you ever eat garlic? Roasted Garlic is a wonderful appetizer, it's economical and health-beneficial.
Take a bulb of garlic and trim enough off the top to expose each clove. Drizzle the exposed top with olive oil. Wrap in aluminum foil and place in a hot oven. I use my toaster oven and it's the best method... toaster oven at 450 degrees for roughly 30 minutes. If you are cooking any other food item that uses a hot oven, add the prepared garlic bulbs then ( i surely wouldn't heat a whole oven just for the appetizer).
Crudite's, crackers, toasted or fresh hard bread work beautifully as a vehicle to bring the tasty roasted cloves (now like a spread) to your lips. Blue cheese is a great addition.
Yummy. and good for your heart.
