Go Ahead, Eat Your Bread

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Are you the type that still gets filled up on the bread at restaurants? You know who you are.

Usually I am pretty good at pacing myself with the bread basket. There are however exceptions. For instance, when there is corn bread in the basket, warm rolls with a cinnamon sugar butter, and Not You Average Joe's bread and oil dip. I don't really care for NYAJ but I will gladly go there strictly because of the oil dip.

But in case you are a more logical person and would not go to a restaurant for the bread, here is how you can replicate it at home!

good extra-virgin olive oil (the greener, the better)
1 clove of garlic, minced
1/2 cup of good quality grated Parmesan 
1-2 teaspoon red pepper flake
salt & pepper to taste 

Place the Parmesan cheese and garlic in the center of a small serving dish. Drizzle the oil over the cheese until most of the cheese is covered. Sprinkle with red pepper flake, salt, and pepper.

Serve with a fresh stick of Italian bread.
