7 Easy Ways To Use Roasted Garlic (Slideshow)

Spread It on a Baguette

Use roasted garlic like butter and spread it on a baguette. 

Mash It in with Potatoes

Mash roasted garlic in with butter to stir into mashed potatoes. This gives the dish a deep, earthy flavor.

Use it on Pizza Dough

Spread roasted garlic paste out on to raw pizza dough, just before putting on the tomato sauce.

Stir It in Pasta

When roasting garlic, throw some halved cherry tomatoes in the same baking pan, and then stir the mixture into pasta for a quick and simple fresh dish.

Make Garlic Infused Oil

Roast it in a baking pan and drizzle it with a generous amount of olive oil. The leftover olive oil in your pan will turn to garlic-infused oil that is great to use in a salad dressing, to baste steak, or to pour on pasta. 

Puree It with Milk to Make a Sandwich Spread

Make a purée by simmering a whole head of garlic in milk. Peel the whole head of garlic and place it in a saucepan. Cover the garlic with milk, and let it simmer for 10 minutes. Throw into a food processor with some salt, pepper, and olive oil and then you have yourself a mellow garlicky spread that's great for sandwiches. 

Make Garlic Roasted Chicken

Cut the top off of the garlic head, drizzle it with olive oil, and throw it into the cavity of a chicken before roasting. The result? A subtly garlic-flavored chicken and a roasted head of garlic to use however you please.
