1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
2. Cut the tops off of each garlic head so that the cloves are exposed. Drizzle each with enough olive oil so that it runs down into the cloves (about 1 tsp per head).
3. Wrap in foil and roast in the oven for 50 minutes.
4. When the garlic heads are done, the insides should be soft. Squeeze out the garlic from the cloves and mash with a fork. Add salt and pepper.
4 heads of garlic
Olive oil for drizzling
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
