Seasoning for Bread, Croutons or Breadcrumbs

“I just came up with this. My DH & I had a wonderful oil based dipping sauce for bread at an Italian restaurant. I was shocked when DH tried it and like it. I was just thinking about that day and thought I can replicate that dipping sauce. This is what I came up with. I also tossed with bread and baked for croutons and breadcrumbs.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix all ingredients together.
  2. If making for a dip you are done. Serve with a pasta dish and warm breadsticks.
  3. If making croutons heat oven to 350°F.
  4. Cut up bread into bite size pieces. Place bread and oil mixture in a sealable bag toss to coat.
  5. Arrange on baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
  6. Cool and store in an airtight container.
  7. If making bread crumbs complete steps for croutons and then place croutons in food processor and blend.
  8. If you feel the crumbs are too wet place on baking sheet and bake for another 5 minutes watching very closely. These will burn in the blink of an eye.
  9. Store in airtight container.
  10. I usually freeze in a storage bag until ready to use.
