 Roasted Garlic Butter

This is so easy to make and it lasts a long time in the frig.  There is nothing like the taste of roasted garlic.  It is not a strong flavor when it’s roasted.  It have a mild sweet flavor and the smell !!!  Well, you just have to love garlic to appreciate this wonderful aroma.

Place a dollop on top of your next steak or spread it on sliced bread and enjoy


  • 2 heads of Garlic (as large as you can get)
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 cup of soft margarine/butter
  • 1 tsp of Parsley flakes
  • Salt/Pepper
  • Aluminum foil


  • Pre-heat oven to 400°
  • Cut the 2 heads of Garlic in two (across the garlic)
  • Place on aluminum foil with cut sides up
  • Drizzle the Olive Oil over the cut sides
  • Sprinkle with Salt/Pepper
  • Pull up all sides of aluminum foil, forming a pocket and making sure all the sides are sealed
  • Place the packet in the oven and bake for 30 minutes

  •  When done, take packet out and open (be careful of the steam) Cool
  • Over a large bowl, turn the garlic upside down and just squeeze out the garlic cloves (they will come out very easy at this point because they are soft)

  • Smash up the garlic cloves with a fork to make a paste
  • Place the cup of soft margarine/butter in with the garlic and mix
  • Add the Parsley flakes
  • Place in a jar (I used a jelly jar, these jars are wonderful for storing) and refrigerate

This will last for about 3 to 4 weeks in the frig.  It goes well with almost anything.

Try a loaf of day old Italian bread, cut into slices about 1 inch thick, rub some garlic butter on both sides and place in a 350 oven for about 15 minutes or until just brown.
