Tuscan Dipping Oil


             Ever go into your favorite Italian restaurant and the one thing you crave more than
             anything is the bread and oil? Well, that's me too. I welcome it with open arms and
             by the time dinner comes I'm full and I wouldn't have it any other way.


        Pull up a seat and have a beverage and enjoy this easy appetizer. You can dip your
        favorite vegetables in the oil as well.

                                                                Tuscan Dipping Oil

                                                                1/3 cup good quality olive oil
                                                                1 teaspoon pepper
                                                                1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
                                                                1 teaspoon garlic powder
                                                                1 teaspoon salt
                                                                1 teaspoon dried oregano
                                                                1 teaspoon dried rosemary
                                                                1 teaspoon dried parsley
                                                                1 teaspoon dried basil
                                                                1 garlic clove, minced
                                                                1 loaf crusty bread

            1 ) Mix everything in a medium size plate and dip your favorite bread and veggies.
         
                      " Note - Sometime's I like to grate some fresh Parmesan on top of the oil "

  27. Oh my second son would go crazy for this. HE will eat anything if he can dip it in something so I am thinking brussel sprouts with this dipping oil? LOL! Kidding but seriously do you think it would work:)))

  28. I love making my own bread dipping oils. This recipe sounds wonderful. What is it about bread and herbed oil that is so wonderful!?

    ReplyDelete
  29. You know what...I have never made my own dipping oil. Seems hard I guess? Anyway, this looks amazing and I'm sure I can handle it :) I will definitely try this.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yes, yes, yes! The same with Mexican and chips and salsa. When we go to a favorite Italian restaurant I would just as soon eat just the bread and skip right to dessert. This sounds wonderful and my whole family loves to dip, dip, dip!
