Garlic Lovers Weekly Recipes | Country Cooking Recipes

If you are like me I use garlic in almost everything I cook. Below is several recipes on various ways we can use garlic to prepare some of our favorite foods.

Roasted Garlic

1 large unpeeled garlic bulb
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/8 teaspoon coarse (kosher) salt

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Cut the garlic bulb in half crosswise (horizontally) and place on a piece of aluminum foil. Lightly sprinkle the cut sides with oil and salt. Put the two halves back together and wrap tightly in the foil.

Bake for 1-1/2 to 2 hours then open the warm bulb and use as a spread in place of butter.

White Garlic Sauce

3 tablespoons chopped garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup olive oil, divided
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

In a small saucepan, combine the garlic, salt and 1 tablespoon oil; heat over low heat for 7 to 9 minutes, or until the garlic is just golden, stirring constantly. 

Add the remaining oil, the parsley, and pepper and heat through.

Buttery Garlic Rolls

3 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (16-ounce) loaf frozen bread dough, thawed

Coat a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.

In a small bowl, combine the melted butter, parsley, garlic, and salt; mix well.

On a lightly floured surface, roll the bread dough into a 12-inch square. Spread the parsley mixture over the dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border on the top and bottom edges. Roll dough tightly, jellyroll fashion, starting at the bottom edge. Pinch to seal the edge.

Cut the roll of dough into 1-inch-wide slices. Place each slice flat-side down into a cup of the muffin pan.

Cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour, or until doubled in size. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Bake the rolls for 9 to 11 minutes, or until golden. Remove from the pan and serve warm.
