- 2 heads, garlic
- 2 teaspoons, extra-virgin olive oil – divided
- Kosher salt and pepper
- 1 loaf ciabatta – sliced 1/4 in. thick (you will need 14 slices)
- 1/4 cup, il Fustino Olio Nuovo
DirectionsPreheat oven to 400°. Cut tops off garlic heads (enough to expose cloves) and discard. Brush cut side of each garlic head with 1/2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil, then sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Place each garlic head on a sheet of foil; enclose in foil and twist tops closed. Bake 40 minutes. Remove foil packets, untwist tops, and drizzle each garlic head with another 1/2 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil. Return open garlic packets to oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Remove garlic from oven and increase heat to 450°. Squeeze garlic cloves from garlic heads (or pop cloves out with a knife) into a small bowl. Mash garlic with a fork.
Toast ciabatta on a grill pan at medium-high heat. Sprinkle with salt while toasting.
Spread roasted garlic on toasts. Drizzle with olio nuovo and sprinkle with a bit more salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
