4 cloves garlic
1/3 cup of water
¼ cup olive oil
French or Italian bread
Cut the top off of each garlic head so that each clove is exposed. Place with cut side up in a small un-greased baking dish; pour water around garlic. Cover and bake at 350° for 1 hour or until garlic is very soft. Cool for 5 minutes. Slowly drizzle oil into the center and over each garlic head. Remove soft garlic from skins; spread on bread or over cooked meats or vegetables.
For additional flavor, place a sprig of fresh thyme over the cut surface of the garlic before roasting.
