Basting Oil Recipe!

Basting oil is one of those ingredients we can not live without in our kitchen.We go through it rapidly so we learned how to make it ourselves. Here are a few foods we use the basting oil with:

 Our crostini appetizer.
(recipe will be on a future post)

Roasting Brussel sprouts.
 Just toss with the basting oil add a little kosher salt and roast at 400 degrees in the oven for 35-40 min. I swear they are like eating candy.
Until I had them prepared this way Brussel Sprouts were not even in my vocabulary!!!!

Homemade Pizza dough.
(recipe future post)

 Mushrooms for in my omelets.

Here is what you will need:
Your favorite bottle to mix it in.
1/2 cup olive oil
1 minced garlic clove
2tsp. parsley
1/2 tsp. thyme
This is what it will look like after mixing.

After it has been sitting all the ingredients will go to the bottom.
I hope you like this recipe as much as we do.

I absolutely love brussel sprouts, and cannot wait to try this oil recipe. This is also a great idea for a gift basket for Christmas -- add some bread and cheese..YUM!
Your pictures are great, and love the buildings with the fall colored ivy...makes a person very homesick for the north.

How Long will this basting oil keep? Do you have to refrigerate once you put it together?
It looks great I will try it this weekend with Fish.

Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine but
when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
amazing blog!
