Pancetta-wrapped Garlic

True, these are pure garlic cloves you're eating, but they've been mellowed by a dunk in boiling water and a salty pancetta wrap. Prep and Cook Time: 50 minutes. Notes: Boiling the garlic briefly makes it easier to peel—you don't have to smash the clove or cut into it to get the skin off.

  • Yield: Makes 6 servings

Ingredients

  • 18 large garlic cloves (unpeeled)
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 4 thin slices pancetta or thin-cut bacon

Preparation

1. Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add garlic and cook 30 seconds. Drain and rinse with cool water. Peel garlic.

2. Bring 1 qt. water to a boil. Add salt and garlic. Bring back to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until garlic is tender when tested with a fork, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and let cool.

3. Preheat oven to 375°. Unroll pancetta slices into strips and cut into 2 1/2-in. lengths. Wrap each garlic clove with a pancetta strip, securing with a toothpick. Put garlic on a baking sheet and bake until sizzling and starting to brown, about 15 minutes. Serve hot.
