Herbed Parmesan Dipping Oil
If you have ever been to Carrabba's Italian Grill, then you've tried their complimentary warm bread and an olive oil based dipping sauce. The first time I tried it, I fell in love. Here is a version that my father-in-law found and shared with us:
½ tsp. Italian herb seasoning OR ¼ tsp. dried oregano and ¼ tsp. dried basil
¼ c. extra virgin olive oil
2 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
Fresh ground pepper (to taste)
Combine seasoning and olive oil on a 6-inch plate or shallow bowl. Top with parmesan cheese.
Serve with fresh and warm French or Italian bread.
If you've never made homemade from scratch bread, you can try these much easier alternatives (which is what I prefer to use):
Pillsbury French Loaf and Pillsbury Italian Bread. We've only ever used the French loaf and it's delicious with this dip. You can find it at your local grocery store with the other Pillsbury products like cinnamon rolls and biscuits.
