Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
Lightly spray a small baking dish with nonstick spray.
With a sharp knife, slice 1/2 inch from the top of each garlic head.
Rub off any loose skins, but do not separate the cloves.
Place garlic in baking dish cut side up. You may sprinkle with seasonings if desired.
Add 1/4 cup water, cover and bake until the garlic cloves are very tender when pierced, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Squeeze cloves from their skins directly onto bread, or use a knife to spread.
Baked garlic heads can be kept in the refrigerator for two or three days.
Roasted cloves may be used in place of sautéed or raw garlic in a recipe for a milder flavor.
