Recipe Notes 1. Total preparation time does not include the time to roast the garlic. 2. To roast a head of garlic, cut a little off the top of the head (1/4 inch or so) to reveal the cloves inside. Place the garlic head on a square of aluminum foil, sprinkle on a little salt and pepper to season and then drizzle with a teaspoon of olive oil. Bring all sides of the aluminum foil together and twist to seal the garlic head inside. Roast in a 350 degree F oven for about 45 minutes. Squeeze the garlic cloves out of their skins and mash with a fork until a smooth paste forms.
For Egg Salad Sandwiches or Deviled eggs
6 hard boiled eggs
4 to 6 tbsp Bacon Ranch Salad Dressing
To make either of these, I cut the eggs in half and remove the yolks which I then mix with the salad dressing.
For the Egg salad, I will chop the whites into a fine dice then mix with the yolk filling ...or for deviled eggs, I just pipe the filling back into the hollow whites.
For the Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad
4 cups cooked pasta, penne works well
3/4 cup Bacon Ranch Salad Dressing
1 1/2 cups chopped mixed vegetables of your choice. I used tomatoes, cucumber and sweet bell peppers.
