Dip in olive oil and bread spices for an appetizer or snack. Works well with Italian dishes.
You can use melted shortening or vegetable oil in place of the olive oil, but I used olive oil for all instances calling for oil.
Also good topped with garlic, parmesan cheese, and a little Italian seasoning or bread spices.
