Carrabba’s Bread Dipping Spices

My husband and I are big fans of Carrabba’s. When we lived closer, we used to eat there often. Now that we are farther away we make Carrabba’s recipes at home. Last night we made Chicken Bryan with some garlic mashed potatoes and wine. As an appetizer we made the Carrabba’s Bread Dipping Spices, added some olive oil and served with Publix White Mountain Bread. Oh! It was a wonderful way to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary.

We’ve tried a few different versions of this recipe over the years, but here is our favorite. If you have fresh herbs, even better but we keep a bag of the dried seasonings mixed in the pantry so that we can enjoy this whenever the mood strikes. Enjoy!

Carrabba's Bread Dipping Spices


  • 1/2 Tbsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
