Holiday Usage Tips from STAR

•    Drizzle STAR Extra Virgin Olive Oil over creamed soups to add flavor and a sophisticated look. If desired, blend first with chopped fresh herbs and salt and pepper.

•    Brush STAR Extra Virgin Olive Oil over brown-and-serve rolls or bread sticks before baking for a deeper, richer color and added flavor.

•    Baste turkey with STAR Originale Olive Oil instead of melted butter.

•    Pour STAR Extra Virgin Olive Oil in the middle of your mashed potatoes instead of butter for a delicious alternative.

•    Cut off top third of whole garlic heads. Place each remaining head on foil square and drizzle with 1 tablespoon STAR Originale Olive Oil per head. Fold foil to enclose. Place on baking sheet and bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes or until very soft. Squeeze pulp out and mash, adding chopped fresh herbs, if desired. Use to spread on rolls instead of butter.
