Roasted Garlic Thermo Sauce
- 1 each head of garlic
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 tbsp all-purpose flour
- 1¼ cup whole milk
- salt and pepper
- To roast the garlic, first preheat the oven to 400 degrees. To prep the garlic, you’ll need to first take the outer wrapping of the bulb off. Next, slice off of about ¼ off the top of the bulb to expose the tops of the garlic cloves. Place the bulb on a small sheet of aluminum foil, and put on a baking sheet
- Drizzle 1-2 teaspoons of olive oil on each bulb, then fold up the edges of the aluminum foil above the garlic bulb to enclose the bulb inside. Place in the oven for 30-35 minutes or until the cloves are soft. Once the garlic is roasted, carefully remove and mash the garlic cloves into a paste. The aluminum foil will be hot, so be careful. Set aside.
- To make the sauce, melt down the butter, then whisk in flour and allow to cook a bit and start to bubble.
- Slowly start to pour in milk and whisk consistently (you make have to add more milk depending on how thick you like the sauce). Continue whisking until thickened and bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper and add in garlic “paste”.
- Turn heat down to low and cook for another few minutes.
- At this point you can serve as is, or can optionally add shredded cheese to the make this into a cheese sauce.
