Roasted Garlic, Avocado, and Brie Baguette

Roasted Garlic, Avocado, and Brie Baguette

So again I was slacking, (actually I was so busy trying to make dinner for guests, take care of the baby, and look fabulous) that I did not manage to take pictures of the rest of the process. It is very simple though really. No need for pictures.

1 clove garlic
2 or 3 ripe avocado
1 package of good brie cheese
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Break apart one whole clove of garlic
(I forgot to break mine apart)
Leave the skin on the cloves. Cover with about 2 or 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a oven safe dish. Cover with tin foil and roast in the oven on 400 F for 30 minutes.

While the garlic is roasting cut your avocado into cubes and toss with a little lime juice and salt and pepper to your taste.

When the garlic is finished remove from stove and let cool.
Once cooled, slice open each cloves skin and pop out the garlic into the olive oil you cooked with. Once you have all the skin removed start to smash up the cloves until you have a consistent paste. Spread this onto your baguette.
Place the baguette back in the oven to toast slightly, until the edges start to brown.

Once they edges are brown remove bread from oven. Spread your avocado mixture over the garlic. Slice your brie however thick you like, and top the garlic avocado toasted baguette with cheese. Place back into oven until cheese just starts to melt. You don't want the cheese to melt completely and run off the sides of the bread.
