Bread Dipping Oil1

What’s not to love about sitting down at your favorite Italian restaurant when out comes warm crusty bread and a dish of herby Bread Dipping Oil.  I could almost make a meal out of it.  Almost.

It’s Friday.  So with my crusty bread dunked in this fabulous Bread Dipping Oil, I shall have a perfectly chilled cocktail, catch up with my family, and slide gracefully into the weekend.

Bread Dipping Oil Herbs & Seasonings

This recipe makes a half cup of the dried herb seasoning blend.  To serve Bread Dipping Oil, sprinkle a tablespoon of seasonings on a shallow bowl or plate, then drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Serve with warm crusty bread and be happy.  I scored a gorgeous Tuscan Roasted Garlic Loaf.  This artisan bread was studded with whole garlic cloves.  Meow!
