Okay, I did a bunch of cooking today! I'm going to start with our appetizer, Bruschetta!
a few head of garlic
Your choice of toppings.
1 Preheat the oven to 400°F.
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 400°F 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.
Get in my oven!
Get in my belly!!!
