Have you ever gone to a restaurant that brings dipping oil for their bread? I’ve been to a few, and it’s always so good! We took the boys to Carrabbas on the first day of school this past year, and they had the bread dipping oil.

I love making homemade bread, and this was perfect to dip in the oil. I also tried a recipe for No Yeast Bread that went well, too. I’ve been trying to use my essential oils in cooking lately. We put quite a few of the Young Living vitality oils in this. Of course, if you don’t have essential oils, you can use fresh herbs. But the oils are easier and add just as much flavor.

PS: If you are looking to purchase some essential oils, you can find the ones I use on YoungLiving.com and use my member number: 17912134 for any order. Or, send me an email, I’d be happy to chat with you about them!

The bread dipping oil couldn’t be easier to make. There’s no cooking involved. You are simply whisking a few things together and it’s ready!

Personally, I like a lot of bold flavors. I ended up adding more balsamic vinegar to this for myself. But, then amount in the recipe was perfect for Justin and the boys.

Also, don’t worry if it doesn’t whisk together completely. As long as you are dipping in the oil, you will get all of the flavors. The only thing that separates is the vinegar from the oil.

Step by Step

In a small bowl, whisk the olive oil with the essential oils. Add the thyme and parmesan cheese and whisk again.

Leftovers

I stored the leftover bread dipping oil in an airtight container. Since nothing in it is refrigerated, I left it out on the counter. It was ready to go the following day.
