Ingredients

  • 1 garlic

  • Olive oil

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 1 teaspoon honey

  • 1 Red Pepper seasoning; Black pepper seasoning; or Herb seasoning

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F. Peel away the dry outer layers of skin from garlic. Cut off the pointed top portions (about 1/4 inch), leaving the bulb intact. Place the garlic, cut side up, in a custard cup. Drizzle with a little olive oil. Cover with foil and bake 25 to 35 minutes or until the cloves feel soft when pressed. Set aside just until cool enough to handle. Squeeze out the garlic paste from individual cloves.

    In a mixing bowl combine the garlic, butter, honey and one of the seasoning blends. Transfer to waxed paper. Shape into a 5x1x11/2-inch log. Freeze 1 hour or until firm.

    Slice and serve on grilled chicken or fish, swirl into soup or just melt on warm biscuits.
