I love roasting garlic slowly in the oven. The kitchen smells amazing; like garlic potpourri! I'll usually roast a few heads at a time. They're great to have on hand for recipes.
The skin will easily come away from the garlic clove.
My dogs get all excited when they smell the garlic roasting. Sasha joined me to see what I was up to!
We were having white-bean stew for dinner so I decided to bake some biscuits to serve with our meal.
The roasted garlic added a great flavor to the biscuits, not an overpowering garlic flavor.
My husband and kids thought they were very good and similar in taste to the ones served at Red Lobster.
The biscuits were delicious, our breath- not so much! After dinner, be sure to pop a piece of gum in your mouth!!
2 1/2 cups Bisquick baking mix
3/4 cup cold buttermilk
4 tablespoons cold butter plus 2 tablespoons
1 head of roasted garlic, cloves carefully removed from their skins
1 heaping cup grated cheddar cheese
1/2 tsp salt salt
1/2 tsp salt salt
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare baking sheet with cooking spray or line with parchment paper 2. Combine Bisquick with cold butter in a medium bowl using a pastry cutter or a large fork 3. Add cheddar cheese, milk, garlic and salt 4. Mix dough by hand until combined; be careful not to over mix 5. Shape the dough into biscuit-sized clumps and drop onto the baking sheet 6. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the tops of the biscuits begin to turn light brown 7. Remove biscuits from the oven and melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a microwave-safe bowl. 8. Use a brush to spread butter over the tops of the biscuits, then sprinkle tops with dried parsley flakes. Enjoy while still warm! Makes one dozen biscuits
