I figured this out the other day, I think it's pretty cool. It may have been common knowledge before, I don't know, but I hadn't heard of it. You know that flavored oil you get to dip bread in in some restaurants? You can get that in just a couple minutes at home with some fresh herbs (dry probably works too, I've only done it once, with fresh). Take a couple tablespoons of fresh herbs, I used basil, oregano, a little finely diced onion, parsley and garlic. Mix it with about a half cup of good olive oil, in a microwave safe container. Then nuke it for 1-2 minutes, covered. If you don't cover it there will be a mess. Then let it sit a couple minutes and you have some herb infused oil. Perfect for dipping bread in. Or brushing on bread then toasting. Or brushing on a roast, scrambling eggs in or browning meatballs. Or whatever, it's flavored oil.
