Cheese Sticks with Dipping Oil

Two posts in one day!  You guys are gonna get spoiled.

This one is my own creation.  One thing I love about Italian restaurants is when they serve warm fresh bread with herbed olive oil - delightful!  Of course bread is out for me now, but there's no reason why I can't have the oil; and warmed string cheese sticks make a nice vehicle for dipping into it.

Cheese Stick with Dipping Oil

6 string cheese
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp grated parmesan cheese

In a small bowl, combine the oil and seasonings; warm in microwave about 15 seconds.  Add the parmesan cheese and let sit a few minutes so the flavors can combine.

Lay out the string cheese in a single layer on a plate.  Microwave for 15 seconds.


And enjoy!  Be aware that the seasonings will usually sit at the bottom of the bowl, so dip accordingly.  This makes a nice, quick snack if you're in the mood for lots of flavor without a lot of work.
