Peel each bulb’s skin layers. Leave the individual cloves “wrapped.” Cut about 1/2 inch off the top of the bulb, or until you see each little garlic clove.
Next, line either a muffin pan or a baking dish with aluminum foil, and place the garlic bulbs in it. Coat each with a dribble of olive oil.
Cover the pan with aluminum foil and bake at 400 F for about 35 minutes. The cloves will get soft, and you will smell it! Watch out — they may be hot! Remove each clove by squeezing it or using a small fork. Eat the garlic straight out of the skin, or add it to your favorite recipe!
