Admit it, you could make a meal from Carrabbas fresh-baked bread and the olive oil dipping sauce. Sometimes, we over indulge and we’re too full for the main entrée. Just in case you want to duplicate this scenario at home, here’s the mouth-watering recipe. Of course, you have to make your own Artisan bread to go along with it, so don’t forget to try the Artisan bread in 5 minutes dough, which makes 4 loaves. I told you could over indulge at home;)
Olive Oil Dipping Sauce
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
1 tsp. (preferably fresh) ground black pepper
2 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 Garlic clove, minced or 1 tsp. granulated garlic
1 tsp. kosher salt
½ c. extra virgin olive oil
Combine all ingredients, except oil, on a deep plate or bowl. Pour good quality olive oil over the seasonings. Serve with fresh-baked Artisan bread like Carrabbas or soft olive oil or canola oil bread.
Or brush the sauce on two halves of french bread. Lightly toast and wrap in foil. Deliver this along with a freezer casserole to someone in need and make them smile.
