One thing I have learned while being married is that I love to dip my food…that is in yummy tasting dips!
Thanks to my husband for pointing this out to me…sadly it’s true…sadly that’s not always the healthiest habit either! If it’s pizza crust I love garlic sauce… if it’s french fries it’s dipped in ketchup…if it’s chicken I’ll take whatever is around…if it’s bread I am a sucker for the yummy restaurant style olive oil and herb dip…warm bread is even better!
Last week I picked up some yummy fresh bread at our local Panera and tried making our very own olive oil and balsamic vinegar bread dip. So so sooooo yummy, if I say so myself! I could have sat at the table and had this for my dinner or supper as we call it here in the south!
If you are more ambitious than I am, feel free to bake some home made bread…and try out this bread dip. That’s about the only thing that could possibly make this any better. The olive oil I used was Zucchi…amazing…their point of difference is keeping it upscale in taste and quality! I think this helps make the difference in this recipe and keeping it rich and real! Extra Virgin Olive Oil is made by pressing without heat or chemicals. Therefore it represents the freshest and purest olive oil available. Did you learn something new today?!?!?! I know I did!
1/2 cup Good Quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil
4-5 Cloves garlic, crushed and minced
2 Tbsp. Oregano
1/4 cup fresh parmesan cheese, finely grated
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
fresh ground black pepper to taste
Fresh bread for dipping
1. Pour the olive oil into a small shallow pan and set over medium to low heat.
2. Add the minced garlic. Leave the oil and garlic over the heat just until it is warm. You are not cooking this, only warming.
3. Pour the oil into a deep plate or wide shallow bowl.
4. Immediately sprinkle oregano, parmesan, balsamic vinegar and black pepper.
5. Serve with hot crush bread.
