Johnny Carino's Olive Oil for Dipping Bread

Here is the recipe I promised last week. Everytime I go to Johnny Carino's, I scarf on the bread. This dipping oil with the roasted garlic is like nothing else I've ever tasted. The texture of the chewy, crunchy garlic is a sensory experience as well. You can even chop and roast the garlic several days ahead and keep it in an airtight container. Or maybe just a ziploc bag if you ever want to be able to use your container again without it making everything smell like garlic.

Oops, I did that.

If you are on a low carb diet you should probably just click on outta here right now, before you do something you'll regret later. Shoot, I could probably say this about all my recipes.


  1. oh my goodness, thank you!!! i love their bread and olive oil dip, i have to make this now!

  2. Do you know how the bread is made or what's in it that I can experiment

  3. Do you know the bread recipe or what's in it so I can experiment??

  4. This blog post is very strange. When I went to print it out, it tried to print 16 copies of the same page.

    When I tried to look at it with my iPhone, you couldn't see the ingredients because the image kept trying to reposition itself off the page even when i tried to scroll.

    The recipe is excellent, though.

  5. Carino's removed all of the dishes I liked from their menu, so the only reason to go there (for me) was the garlic. And now I can make it myself. Thank you!! I burned the garlic on my first try and it was still excellent.

  6. how do you keep the garlic from sticking to the parchment paper?

    1. The garlic is most sticky when it isn't completely roasted. I let it cool on the parchment paper and then scrape the stuck parts off with the edge of a spatula or a dough scraper.

  7. hey i work at carinos and the oil is just made up of the garlic, basis, salt, thyme, oregano, and pepper. the bread has a beer base.

  8. Store the roasted garlic in a glass jar with a metal lid...the garlic smell will not linger in the glass after you wash it.

  9. store the garlic in a glass jar. the glass will not retain the smell after it is washed.
