Easy to Make & Take!

This recipe is simple and delicious. You can mix it ahead of time so that the flavors really soak in. "Make and Take" it with you to a game day or tailgate party.

I have made this for family gatherings, cookouts, even a teacher appreciation lunch. If you have several tables you can make the dip in a container and then pour in saucers and put one on each table with a basket of bread.

Only 4 Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Extra Light Tasting Olive Oil, Filippo Berio
  • 3/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 tbsp. Red Pepper Flakes
  • 2 tbsp. Chopped Garlic
  • Crusty Bread, any flavor or variety

Make & Take Olive Oil Dip

If making this dip to take to a party put all ingredients in a container with an airtight lid. Shake to mix up the ingredients. Bread can be cut ahead of time and put back in its original wrapper. The dish for the dip should be large and shallow as opposed to small and deep. A glass pie plate or similar dish works well. For the bread use a towel lined basket or serving dish.

Simple Instructions

  1. In a glass pie plate or similar dish add all ingredients. Use a fork to crush any clumps of Parmesan Cheese.
  2. Cut up the bread into large cubes or small slices and serve in a lined basket or dish.

This is one french bread cut up. I usually cut up 3-4 of these with this recipe. I prefer Extra Light Tasting Virgin Olive Oil by Filippo Berio as pictured above. It is not overpowering like some Olive Oils. Another option is to use any type of infused oil you like such as Garlic Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

If you are serving a large crowd this is a great appetizer to serve before Grilled Potatoes with Onion & Bacon and Juicy BBQ Chicken. Enjoy!

      I'm one of a few admins on a site and we each have mulitple computers, locations, and browsers we use.From what I can tell, your solution seems like it'll take care of all of that by just inserting your code problem is, where how/ does one use it?Obviously, I'm completely clueless on coding, I'm just a blogger who is tired of seeing 2/3 of our hits come from the admins (not to mention how much that's skewing the other results- notably time on site and bounce rate).Thank you for your help.

      Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring wrretis? I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any ideas? Thanks a lot!

      Thank you Kim. I actually still have some left and my husband came home today with another loaf of crusty bread for himself and our son to polish it off.

      Thank you Mecheshier. I love when you walk into a supermarket after work and they have warm bread just out of the oven. This is the perfect dip for it. I always have these ingredients in my house so it's easy to whip up at the last minute.
