Tips Tricks and FAQs
- If you want everyone to enjoy this, you can omit the crushed red peppers. You do not want to add any additional ingredients to replace it.
- Feel free to try other oils if you prefer. I have used sunflower oil, flavored olive oil, and avocado oil. You will not want to use vegetable oil or peanut oil as these don’t have the right flavors for a dipping oil.
- Use your favorite types of bread for dipping.
- Be sure to continue to stir the dip with your bread so that the spices continue to be spread throughout the dip.
This bread dipping oil is best enjoyed right away. It is best to discard the leftover dipping oil and make a fresh batch the next time you would like to enjoy it.
How do you serve bread dipping oil?
The best way to serve bread dipping oil is in a wide shallow bowl. This allows you to really get those seasonings on the bread you are dipping without the seasonings sinking to the bottom of the dish.
Take your bread and wipe it on the bottom of the dish and get all the spices in every bite.
