How to Toast French Bread for Dipping

We used sliced french bread!

The bread is just french bread, sliced into 1/4″ slices, brushed with olive oil on both sides, and seasoned with salt.

I placed the slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and broiled them until they were browned about 3-5 minutes. I didn’t flip, but you could. Let cool before serving.

Recipe Tips

While we prefer honey in our dip, it’s just as easy to change out the topping to a more savory olive oil, lemon, or a fresh herbs and seasoning blend. 

Try a bit of rosemary, minced garlic, and olive oil. 

While whipping the ricotta, add a bit of orange or lemon zest (or fresh lemon juice) to infuse the flavor into the cheese. 

Ricotta is naturally recognizable in various Italian foods, so roasted cherry tomatoes on top of ricotta toast is an incredibly delicious appetizer recipe choice.

Spoon leftovers on top of chicken or fish.

Use kosher salt or flay salt if you like an extra salty dish in your ricotta recipes. 

Mix in chopped sun-dried tomatoes, greek olives or spread on top of hummus. Our favorite layered greek dip recipe would shine with a layer of this dip! 

Store the container of ricotta cheese dip in an airtight container for up to 2 days in the refrigerator.

What to serve with Ricotta Dip

Whipped cheeses go great as spreadable on a sandwich or bread. Grill or broil up Italian bread, French baguette slices, bagels, or crostninis for best results. 

This dip recipe is also a great choice as a vegetable dip.
