Roasted Garlic and Parmesan Spread

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"This is an awesome and simple bread spread to use in place of butter or garlic butter. Use light mayonnaise if you want fewer calories. The prep time is almost nothing if you have roasted garlic in the fridge from a previous meal. Spread thinly on bread before toasting in the oven or serve in a bowl for guests to apply to their own bread."

  3. Roast garlic in the preheated oven until soft and fragrant, 30 to 45 minutes. Remove garlic from aluminum foil and transfer to a bowl.

Tasty! This would also be a great topper for burgers or steak sandwiches. I used light mayo. I would make this again! Thanks for sharing. :)

I made this per recipe but found it a bit too oily so I tweaked it using homemade ricotta cheese instead of mayonnaise. You could also use cottage cheese that has been pureed or mashed up a bit ...

I think it would be better with cheese.
