Step 1

Remove papery outer skin from garlic (do not peel or separate cloves). Cut top off bulb. Brush with 1-1/2 teaspoons oil; sprinkle with rosemary. Wrap in heavy-duty foil. Bake at 425°F for 30-35 minutes or until softened.

Meanwhile, cut the top fourth off the loaf of bread; carefully hollow out enough of the bottom of the bread so cheese will fit. Cube removed bread; set aside. Place cheese in bread.

Cool garlic for 10-15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375°F. Squeeze softened garlic into a bowl and mash with a fork; spread over cheese. Replace bread top; brush outside of bread with remaining oil. Wrap in heavy-duty foil.

Bake for 45-50 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with toasted baguette, grapes, and reserved bread cubes.
