English term or phrase:roasted garlic burgers
...1 whole bulb garlic is roasted...then added to ground beef
sorry folks for not jumping in sooner...working on a tight deadline...must say, this has been an interesting discussion so far...the recipe in the manual I'm working on does not specify how to roast the garlic bulb except to do it the night before then add to ground beef.
The taste isn't the same and if this is a US recipe I'm here to tell you that whole bulbs are roasted over an open flame unless one doesn't have a gas stove in which case, if this is a BBQ, the preferred thing would be to roast the bulb on the BBQ; using the oven would be a last resort.
...over here, there are plenty of recipes (in FR) involving roasted garlic that has very definitely been roasted in the oven; so I think we have to admit that both techniques are equally valid. And in the domestic situation, I'd say that pre-roasting the garlic in your oven at home before you actually get to the BBQ is a quite likely scenario...
The garlic can be oven roasted but is usually roasted on the stove over an open flame just like bell peppers are. Then it is incorporated into the burger or just added as a garnish. You don't get the smoky flavor if the garlic is oven roasted. Believe me, I used to serve them in my restaurant (roasted garlic fries also) and this is the preponderate way that it is done.
..the original meaning of 'roast' would indeed have been 'spit-roast', and ovens only came later.
However, that said, given the detail in the question, it sounds as if the garlic is first roasted whole, and then incorporated into the minced beef for making the burgers for later cooking; so I still favour the idea of the garlic's having been oven-roasted rather than grilled.
sorry to disagree Emile but roast for me means IN an oven (roast potatoes, beef etc), on a spit is (rotisserie) grilled or BBQd, grill however is either ON or Under a grill. Anyway, was hoping asker would tell us more...
to roast has two meanings in English and roasted garlic or roasted peppers are usually grilled over an open flame since grilling over an open flame is one of the meanings of "roasted" to roast something on a spit is to grill it over an open flame.
As to how the burgers themselves are cooked that's another matter - pan fryed, grilled in an oven, grilled on a barbeque.
