Bread Dipping Oil

I made frozen bread dough for many people for Christmas & everyone has thoroughly enjoyed it! This dipping oil can be used instead of butter to enhance the flavor of any bread. I'm not sure how long it keeps, though...there's never been any leftover!

1/2 c olive oil
1/4 to 1 t crushed red pepper
1 t black pepper
1 t dried oregano
1 t dried rosemary
1 t dried basil
1 t parsley flakes
1 t granulated garlic
1 t minced garlic or 1 1/2 t garlic salt
1 t coarse salt (omit if using garlic salt)
  1. Heat all ingredients in a small saucepan over medium heat until very hot but not bubbly.
  2. Use hot or let cool (oil will have changed to a greenish color).
