Macarroni Grill's Bread Dipping Mix

Hello! I am new to the mix and so I thought I would share my favorite little appetizer to snack on while making dinner. For those of you that have been to any good Italian restaurant you will enjoy this!

1 TB basil
1 TB parsley
1 TB minced garlic
1 t thyme
1 t oregano
1 t ground black pepper
1/2 t rosemary
1/2 t sea salt
1/4 chili flakes
1/8 t lemon juice
small bottle of olive oil

Combine all spices in a food processor. Blend until spices are fine and relatively the same size. Mix in lemon juice. Add mix to a small bottle of olive oil and serve with warm bread. 

Our favorite bread to dip in this is: 

Whole Wheat Potato Bread

1 3/4 cups white flour
2 tablespoons yeast
1 cup milk
1/2 cup water
2 TB butter
2 TB sugar
1 TB salt
1 1/2 cups seasoned mashed potatoes
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup minced onion
2 t basil
1 tsp garlic powder
4-5 cups whole wheat flour

Stir together white flour and yeast. Blend milk,water,butter,sugar and salt over low heat until warm. Add liquid ingredients to flour and yeast and blend until smooth. Beat in potatoes, sour cream, onion, basil and garlic powder until smooth. Stir in enough flour to make a stiff dough. Allow to rise for about 45 minutes. Punch down and divide dough in half and shape into two loaves. Put in greased loaf pans and let rise for about 30 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees for 35-45 minutes.
