Best Roasted Garlic Crostini

Print Friendly and PDF
This is yummy with soup, I served it with my Cream of Mushroom Soup with Truffle Oil      

For the roasted garlic:
4 heads garlic
¼ cup olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste

For the Crostini:
12 slices of baguette or country-style Italian bread, sliced
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
Shredded Parmesan Reggiano Cheese

COOKING MUSIC SELECTION: Alison Krauss-Down to the River to Pray

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Cut the tipped part of the heads of garlic off and place them into a small baking dish, cover the garlic with olive oil and bake for 30 minutes.  They will be soft a mellow.  Let them cool.  Squeeze out the soft roasted garlic and add olive oil to make a spread.  Sprinkle them with cheese.

Spread onto bread slices and place on a cookie sheet.  Turn up the oven to 400 degrees and bake for 10 minutes until golden brown and serve.
