Easy Oven Roasted Garlic Recipe for a Gourmet Charcuterie Board

When my husband and I are having lunch at home together during the week, we have a few favourite meals we like to make. And a charcuterie board is always one of our top picks.

Meat, cheese, crackers and a few garnishes combine to make a lunch that feels like a gourmet treat.


Roasted garlic is one of our all-time favourite additions to a charcuterie board. For months, we bought it by the spoonful from our local grocery store’s deli section. But then we tried making it ourselves, and I was thrilled with how easy it was. If you love garlic, you’ve got to give this simple oven roasted garlic recipe a try!

Making roasted garlic is as easy as cutting off the top, rubbing it with a bit of olive oil and baking it in the oven. If you’re making lots of it, put each bulb in a muffin tin and cover the top with foil. If you’re just making one bulb, wrap it loosely in foil on its own.


Then, when the garlic reaches that perfect golden-brown colour, let it cool and either serve immediately by squeezing the garlic out of each clove or refrigerate until needed.

While we prefer our oven roasted garlic spread onto crackers along with our favourite meats and cheeses, it’s also delicious added to dips and sauces!

Now that I’ve made this roasted garlic recipe at home, I won’t be buying it too much. It’s not often that five minutes of preparation and a bit of time in the oven yields something this delicious!

If you want to serve up a lunch that will wow your guests, just add this roasted garlic to sandwiches or serve it with your favourite cheese, meat, olives and crackers.


But no matter how you choose to use it, one thing is certain. This roasted garlic recipe is a garlic-lover’s dream come true!

  1. Very easy. I’ve seen this to use in recipes before too but I always think its much too extra work so I’ll do it next time since its simple. Would love for a cheese board as well because we have in laws over monthly so that’s an easy snack to put out.
