On Halloween, we had some friends over for dinner, Monopoly, and help handing out candy.  We started our night with some roasted garlic, goat cheese with toasted french bread.  I also added a store bought roasted red pepper pesto to the platter for some festive orange color.   
 


1 large head of garlic

1/4 cup of olive oil

12 ounces of soft goat cheese

1 baguette, sliced


Preheat oven to 350°F. Cut top 1/4 inch off heads of garlic to expose cloves. Place garlic in small baking dish. Add oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper; toss to coat. Turn garlic cut side up. Cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake until garlic skins are golden brown and cloves are tender, about 55 minutes. Cool. Squeeze garlic cloves from skins.  In an oven proof dish,   place goat cheese.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Searve with sliced baguettes.
