Copycat Carrabba’s Bread Dip Spices

If you’ve ever been to Carrabba’s, you have probably had their scrumptious bread dip. I think I could make it a meal. Finding a copycat recipe for the spice blend at the heart of their bread dip was just irresistible. Try and keep me from making it!

The best bread dip recipe out there! Use as a dipping sauce for cheese, meats, drizzle on salads or mix into pasta sauce. These are the best dipping spices to make ahead and keep it in the pantry!

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. I stopped by my grocery store’s bakery for that. Pre-packaged bread just isn’t the same.

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

The Process

This bread dip is as easy to make as you think it is. 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 the 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 teaspoon 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.

So how was it?

This recipe is a spot-on copycat of Carrabba's delicious bread dip. You probably have the olive oil and spices in your pantry. Just add fresh garlic and a loaf of crusty bread, and you have a delectable appetizer ready in only 5 minutes. My husband and I both loved it. He joked about making the bread into a meal. At least I think he was joking...
