Garlic Roasted on the Grill
- Prepare your garlic by slicing the top of the garlic bulb off (depending on the size of your bulb it should be around ¼ to a ½ of an inch from the top) to expose the individual cloves.
- Next drizzle the exposed garlic cloves with olive oil. Just a good drizzle will do.
- Cover the bulb with aluminum foil. Pro Tip: We’ve experimented without using the foil and don’t recommend it. It will dry out the cloves and encourage burning on the outer cloves. Covering them with foil protects the cloves from burning while also steaming the cloves so they all cook uniformly and end up soft and creamy when they’re done.
- Place covered bulbs on a hot grill, over indirect heat, for approximately 40 minutes (this will vary based on the exact size of your bulbs). Then open the foil and use your finger to test if they’re done. They should be nice and soft to the touch when roasted through.
- Remove and serve this delicious treat! Using a small knife or cocktail fork, gently remove the individual roasted garlic cloves from the skins and serve over bread or in your favorite recipes.
