  • 1 head garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups ketchup


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. Cut the top tip off of the head garlic, just enough to expose all of the cloves. Place the head of garlic on a piece of aluminum foil. Drizzle with olive oil and seal the foil around the garlic. Place garlic packet on a baking sheet or baking dish. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
