This simple, but simply divine recipe came from www,  When Olivia makes this, she buys the garlic heads in bulk, roasts them all at once and then smashes them. For convenience, she freezes them in ice cube trays.  Once the garlic is frozen, she stores them in freezer bags in the freezer for ease in using.

These lovely little frozen wonders can be popped into mashed potatoes, soups, in marinades, or you can even smear them on bread to make garlic bread.  If you like garlic, try this.  It is a delightful way to enjoy garlic.

    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut top 1/4 inch off heads of garlic to expose cloves. Place garlic in small baking dish. Add oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Turn garlic cut side up. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake until garlic skins are golden brown and cloves are tender, about 55 minutes. Cool. Squeeze garlic cloves from skins.
