Let's Make It
Cut 1/4 inch off top of garlic head, leaving papery skins intact; discard top. Place garlic head on sheet of foil; drizzle with 1/2 tsp. oil. Wrap in foil. Bake 30 min. Cool.
Heat oven to 350ºF. Slip roasted garlic from skins into large bowl; mash to a paste. Add sour cream, cheeses and mayo; mix well. Add beans; stir to evenly coat.
Spoon into 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Mix cracker crumbs and remaining oil; sprinkle over bean mixture.
Bake 25 min. or until heated through.
Prepare using 8 cups partially cooked trimmed fresh green beans. To cook the beans, trim, then discard stems and ends from beans. Add beans to large pan of boiling water; cook just until beans are crisp-tender. Drain; rinse under cold running water, then use as directed.
