The Ingredients

I didn’t have to shop for a single ingredient for this recipe except the bread to go with it. how awesome is that? The herbs, spices, and olive oil are all things I keep in my pantry. The only thing I don’t keep in there is fresh, crusty bread.

If I’m out and about and plan to serve the bread on the same day, I will stop by my grocery store’s bakery. That usually isn’t the case, though, so I like to buy par-baked bread. It’s prepackaged partially baked bread that I can finish baking in 10 minutes. The taste and texture are just like bakery fresh bread.

Extra virgin olive oil, garlic, crushed red pepper, black pepper, oregano, basil, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, coarse sea salt, and rosemary

The Process

This Carrabba’s Bread Dipping Oil is as easy to make as you think. Mincing the garlic and slicing the bread is the most work you’ll do for this recipe. I had mine ready to serve in 5 minutes, exactly the time listed on the recipe. Just spoon the spices into a bowl and mix them together.

This recipe yields 1/4 cup of dry spices which is too much for just my husband and me. I opted not to mix in the fresh garlic until I was ready to serve so the leftover mixture wouldn’t spoil. Instead, I minced the fresh garlic 1 clove at a time, topped it with about a tablespoon of the spice mixture, and drizzled that with the olive oil.

And what to serve it with? Pretty much anything! But if you want to keep it Italian, I have a few ideas for the main course.

At least I think he was joking...
