  2. Removed as much of the Garlic Paper as you can
  3. Cut a square of Aluminum Foil and place it on the counter
  4. Place the Garlic bulb in the center of the foil
  5. Then drizzle a nice amount of Olive Oil onto the cloves (it's ok if you spill some over : )
  6. Sprinkle with Salt... Pepper and if you would like ... some Hot crushed pepper
  7. Wrap up your clove all snug and repeat with the next Bulb and how many more you are roasting
  8. Place the wrapped Bulbs onto a Cookie Sheet and put into your preheated 400 Oven

  10. When it reaches the color you are looking for... remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes
