Though it's best eaten straightaway, you can also make the confit up to one day in advance and warm before serving. The flavors are concentrated, so a little goes a long way.

2 whole garlic heads
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup chopped prosciutto (about 1 ounce)
1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
24 (1/2-inch-thick) slices diagonally cut French bread baguette
Chopped fresh parsley (optional)


Preheat oven to 350°.

Remove white papery skin from garlic heads (do not peel or separate the cloves). Wrap each head separately in foil. Bake at 350° for 1 hour; cool 10 minutes. Separate cloves; squeeze to extract garlic pulp. Discard skins.

Heat olive oil in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add chopped prosciutto and coarsely ground black pepper; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Combine garlic pulp and oil mixture in a small bowl, stirring with a fork until well blended. Serve with bread slices. Garnish with parsley, if desired.
