You will need Garlic, how much will depend on how many you are feeding..I like everyone to have a least one bulb for themselves.
Thyme (for this recipe, I used ground Thyme)
A baguette, French or Italian
Aluminum Foil you don't have a garlic roaster. (It is made of Terracotta)
First, you will cut the tops off the garlic bulbs to open them up. You will peel the outer part so that it looks like this, I also use kitchen scissors to clean off tops so the olive oil will be absorbed.
Put in oven and then set oven to 350 degrees. If cooking in aluminum foil, I have noticed that you need to cook at a little higher temperature. I would set at 400 degrees. You will cook the garlic covered for 1 hour. Uncover and cook another 15 minutes to 1/2 hour until it is buttery soft. I usually take a butter knife and poke the garlic to see if it has become soft.
While the garlic roasts, you will slice your cheese and tomato in to slices.
You spread the garlic on the bread and you can eat alone or top with tomato and cheese for a fresh flavor
I hope you enjoy this this little slice of heaven. If you like garlic, I promise, this will not disappoint.
