Herb Dipping Oil

Since I'm back to baking more bread after a summer hiatus, I thought I'd share the recipe for my herb dipping oil. My sister-in-law introduced us to this years ago. I love it with a bread such as ciabatta but it doesn't have to be homemade bread, just pick up your favorite crusty bread at your grocery store.

I mix up a batch of this seasoning to have ready when the bread urge hits. To serve I swirl a little olive oil on a small plate for each person and sprinkle some herbs on it. Then we tear into the bread and mop up the oil. Yum.

Herb Dipping Oil Seasoning

1 T oregano
1 T rosemary
1 T basil
1 T parsley
1 T garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper

Mix all together. Store in an air-tight container.

You may adjust seasonings to your liking. Options would include adding red pepper.

To Serve: Place a thin layer of olive oil on a plate. Sprinkle a teaspoon or two on the oil. Serve with crusty bread.


  1. Bread making question for you:
    Does yeast need to be room temp before using or can I use right out of refrig? thanks!

    1. I use instant yeast and I store it in the freezer to keep it fresh. I use it directly from the freezer and measure it into my dough. Works great.

  2. YUM! We love dippin' bread! My daughter makes it without a recipe, but I should save yours because while she was away for 1 1/2 years we didn't have dippin' bread even once! Regina Martin


I love to hear from you.
