Ever been to an Italian restaurant that served oil with bread? I never liked that concept-or at least, their version of it. It was 95% oil and 5% spices. IF that. So, I made up my own version that is nearly the opposite. It is DELICIOUS. A great, simple but impressive addition to any meal. If you have the crusty bread, you should DEFINATELY make this.
In a small dipping bowl, add:
3/4- 1 cup olive oil (depending on size of party)
1 1/2 t. garlic powder
2 shakes onion powder
a pinch of Thyme-crushed
2 shakes Oregano
Add two sage leaves...but be sure to pinch or rub them first, as this allows the flavors to meld a bit more.
Then just dip away!
This is very garlicy-just how I like it. Only eat it with those whom you love. Or especially DON'T like and won't be in close proximity to. If you like less garlic, by all means, change the proportions.
