- 3 large whole heads garlic

- Whole wheat baguette slices
Preheat oven to 425°F. Gently peel off the papery, most outer layer of each head of garlic. Cut about 1-inch from the top of each head, leaving individual cloves intact within the head. Place the heads into a small baking dish that has been lined with aluminum foil. Pour olive oil evenly
over the heads and sprinkle evenly with the oregano and rosemary. Cover dish with aluminum foil. Bake 50 to 60 minutes or until the cloves are golden brown and soft when pierced with the tip of a knife. Remove from oven; remove foil and let garlic heads cool until they can be easily
handled. Using a small spoon, remove the softened cloves to a small bowl. Pour any olive oil mixture from the baking dish into the bowl and gently mash the cloves. Season with pepper.
