This simple recipe is a signature dish of the Little City restaurant in San Francisco.
Brie with Roasted Garlic

2 large heads of garlic
2 t olive oil
1/2 t salt
8 oz whole wheel of brie
baguette sourdough or other crusty bread

Remove all but one layer of husks from the garlic (don’t separate into cloves). Place in small baking dish, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Bake covered in 350 degree oven until very tender, 75 to 90 minutes.

Score an “X” on the brie and place in a small iron skillet or shallow baking dish. Broil until browned and bubbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Meanwhile, slice the baguette thinly.

Serve cheese while bubbling with the garlic and bread. Squeeze a clove or two of soft roasted garlic on a slice of bread, spread with a little melted cheese and eat immediately.
