In my opinion, whipped butter is the best thing to come along since sliced bread. I came up with this super simple recipe to serve whipped butter with dinner rolls for Thanksgiving dinner. Roasted garlic also is amazing when spread on bread, why not have it all? Add in some chopped fresh herbs and you have a sinfully savory spread.
Roasting garlic in the oven takes about an hour. You can roast the garlic the day before and finish in about 5 minutes the day you want to serve.
I find that removing the garlic bulb skin before roasting is a lot easier than cutting the bulb in half and wrapping the cloves with the skin in aluminum foil. It’s a little extra work in the beginning but once the bulbs are roasted, they can just get dumped into a food processor.
