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

Instructions

Roast the garlic

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F
  • Remove any loose papery outer layers from the garlic, but leave the tight fitting peel intact.
  • Slice about ¼ inch off the top of the garlic head – the side that doesn’t sit flat.
  • 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.
  • Bring up all four sides of the aluminum foil and wrap tightly on top. Repeat with the remaining garlic.
  • Place the garlic heads on a baking sheet and roast for 40-50 minutes. until they're golden, and a spreadable consistency.
  • Remove the garlic from the oven. Turn off the oven for a little while; so it to cools off a bit to bake the brie.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • 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.

Serve the baked brie and roasted garlic

  • Spread a clove of roasted garlic on a piece of bread and top with a generous amount of brie cheese.

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.
