  • Pre-heat the oven to 220°C / Gas 7
  • Slice the bottom off the garlic, about 2 cm to reveal the open cloves
  • Heat an ovenproof frying pan with 4 tbsp olive oil
  • Once hot season the cut bottom of the garlic with salt and pepper, then place cut side down into the hot oil
  • Place the pan into the pre heated oven and cook for 35-40 minutes
  • Meanwhile toast the sourdough slices and keep warm
  • Check the garlic is cooked, it should be very soft and mushy and really well coloured
  • To serve, squeeze the garlic out onto the toast and spread evenly
  • Dot with a little unsalted butter and more salt and pepper, then serve
