Okay, I did a bunch of cooking today! I'm going to start with our appetizer, Bruschetta!


1- Baguette
a few head of garlic
Evoo
cheese
Your choice of toppings.


1 Preheat the oven to 400F.

2 Peel away the outer layers of the garlic bulb skin, leaving the skins of the individual cloves intact. Using a knife, cut off 1/4 to a 1/2 inch of the top of cloves, exposing the individual cloves of garlic.

3 Place the garlic heads in a baking pan; muffin pans work well for this purpose. Drizzle a couple teaspoons of olive oil over each head, using your fingers to make sure the garlic head is well coated. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 400F for 30-35 minutes, or until the cloves feel soft when pressed.

4 Allow the garlic to cool enough so you can touch it without burning yourself. Use a small small knife cut the skin slightly around each clove. Use a cocktail fork or your fingers to pull or squeeze the roasted garlic cloves out of their skins.

Meanwhile, cut the baguette on the diagonal, in 1/2" slices.
Arrange on a baking tray and spread some of that cooked garlic on each piece, drizzle olive oil and sprinkle some mozzarella cheese on top and put in oven for 5-6 minutes until golden brown! Serve first course!
Put whatever you think would taste good on top, we used some store bought hot and spicey pizza toppings.
