Bread Dipping Oil with herbs and spices

Olive oil is made by pressing crushed olives. The first pressing is called extra virgin olive oil. This pressing produces the most delicate flavor oil and the most antioxidants. Therefore extra virgin olive oil is considered the healthiest and best quality olive oil for you to use.

Bread Dipping Herbs and Spices:
Add one teaspoon of the following to ¼ – ½ cup extra virgin olive oil:
basil, parsley flakes, rosemary, minced garlic or powder, dry red pepper, black pepper, salt.

You can also make your own flavored olive oil by adding a pinch of crushed red pepper flakes and 1 teaspoon of basil pesto or sun dried tomato pesto to 4 cups of extra virgin olive oil.

You can also use separate dipping dishes with one filled with oil and bread dipping herbs and spices and another filled with grated cheese, like Parmesan or Romano. You would first dip the bread into the oil with herbs and then dip the oiled bread into the dish with grated cheese.

You can purchase individual or multiple of these dipping dishes online at cruets.com. They offer custom made stoneware artisan dishes of an interesting swirl design that blend beautifully on any table décor.


For family table use, slice a thick loaf of Italian into bite-size pieces without the bread crust.
Mix the olive oil with the Bread Dipping Herbs mentioned in the above recipe.
Pour the olive oil and herb mixture into a bread dipping dish.
Dab the bread into the oil using your fingers.
For an additional topping add fresh sliced tomato.
