2 whole garlic bulbs

1 foot aluminum foil

1 tablespoon olive oil

1/4 cup pine nuts

1 sourdough baguette, cut into 1/2-inch slices

4 ounces strong goat cheese

6 sprigs Italian parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Slice 1/2-inch off the pointed end of the garlic bulb to expose each clove. Place garlic on aluminum foil. Pour 1 teaspoon of olive oil over the top of each bulb and let it sink into the cloves.
  3. Wrap foil around garlic bulbs and bake for approximately 1 hour, or until exposed cloves are golden brown.
  4. In a dry saute pan over medium-high heat, toast pine nuts for approximately 5 minutes, or until golden brown.
  5. Toast baguette slices in oven or toaster oven.
  6. To serve, place garlic, cheese, pine nuts and parsley on a serving plate along side crostinis. Instruct guests to extract individual garlic cloves from bulb with a small fork, spread on toast, and top with goat cheese, pine nuts and parsley leaves.
