Ingredients

3 Heads of Garlic

6 teaspoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil (2 teaspoons for each garlic head)

1 Large Brie Wheel (13-14 ounces)

1 Large Loaf of Baguette Bread

 

You will also need

Aluminum foil, heavy duty

Parchment paper

Baking sheets

 

Cook’s Notes

Roasted garlic is much milder that raw or sautéed garlic. Roasting caramelizes the garlic, it even gets a hint of sweetness – and loses a lot of its kick.

 

Roast the garlic

Preheat the oven to 400°F

  1. Remove any loose papery outer layers from the garlic, but leave the tight fitting peel intact.
  2. Slice about ¼ inch off the top of the garlic head – the side that doesn’t sit flat.
  3. Cut 3 pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil, roughly 12”. Set one garlic head in the middle. Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil carefully, making sure it sinks into the individual cloves.
  4. Bring up all four sides of the aluminum foil and wrap tightly on top. Repeat with the remaining garlic.

Roasting Garlic Process

 

Place the garlic heads on a baking sheet and roast for 40-50 minutes. Check the garlic after 40 minutes. If the garlic is not golden, and a spreadable consistency, continue cooking for 10 minutes at a time until they’re done. Remove the garlic from the oven. Turn off the oven for a little while; we need it to cool off a bit to bake the brie.

 

Preheat the oven to 350°F. In the meantime, cut the baguette into ½ inch rounds. Arrange the bread on a baking sheet and set aside.

 

Place the brie wheel on a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper. Bake the brie for 15-20 minutes, or until the inside is melted. The brie should give when pressed lightly. When the brie is almost done, place the bread in the oven for the last 5-6 minutes to toast it just a little bit.
