I had a lot of garlic cloves in my fridge, and I was concerned that they were going to go bad soon. What better way to make use of the garlic cloves than to roast them. After roasting them, I spread them on some burger patties. It just happened that the gentle flavor of the roasted garlic combined really well with the beef.
I started with some peeled garlic cloves and chopped off the end of each clove. (The oven was preheated to 350F (175C).)
I folded the garlic cloves into a sort of bowl made from tin foil and poured some olive oil into the bowl.
After scrunching up the top of the tin foil bowl, I wrapped another piece of tin foil around it to prevent any of the olive oil from leaking through. After 40 minutes, the garlic was really soft and easy to spread.
