Yesterday we bought a 3 pound jar of peeled garlic from Sam's Club.

This morning, I took 8 or 9 cloves and minced them, then sauteed them in a bit of olive oil.  When they started to turn brown, but before they started to burn, I mashed them into some butter and spread it over toasted sourdough bread.  Yum!

Anyone have any recipes that are heavy on garlic?

Flay pork chops open lengthwise, stuff full of crushed garlic. Brown in pan on medium heat (both sides), add red wine, allow to simmer. Scoop garlic out, mix into red wine, extract chops and add thickening agent to wine/garlic/porkjuices mix.

Serve with whatever side you think wine/garlic/pork gravy would be good with.

Cook garlic stuff in the oil briefly before you add the sauce..

Minced raw garlic in mayo makes an awesome spread. I used to mince up 3-4 cloves and spread it on toast and add a few slices of onion. I was odd growing up ^^

40 Cloves and a Chicken
I've wanted to try this one since Alton Brown talked about it on the all-garlic episode of Good Eats, but I haven't yet.

From the Food Network website:

40 Cloves and a Chicken
Recipe courtesy Alton Brown

1 whole chicken (broiler/fryer) cut into 8 pieces
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons olive oil
10 sprigs fresh thyme
40 peeled cloves garlic
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Toss with a 2 tablespoons olive oil and brown on both sides in a wide fry pan or skillet over high heat. Remove from heat, add oil, thyme, and garlic cloves. Cover and bake for 1 1/2 hours.

Remove chicken from the oven, let rest for 5 to 10 minutes, carve, and serve.
