Roasting Garlic & Garlic Bread

I love roasting garlic and make garlic butter for my bread.  You can use homemade or store bought bread - baguette, ciabatta  - whatever you like.

First: Take your garlic head and cut off the base or you could cut off the top - either or.
Second: Put your garlic in foil, pour olive oil, and grind salt over it then close the foil around the entire head of garlic.
Third: Turn your oven on 375 (no need to preheat) and put the foil with the garlic in the oven and leave there for 50 mins.

Take out, open, and let cool.  Then squeeze the garlic out in a small dish and add olive oil or melted butter and mix together.  Then take a brush and brush onto your bread.  Top with parmesan or asiago cheese and bake in the oven on 350 for 10 mins.  Goes great with any meal or by itself.
