How to serve your bread for dipping?

Serve your bread on a large platter. Cut your bread into bite sized pieces that are 1-2” long. People will be less likely to double dip if you cut the bread into small pieces. You could also put toothpicks into the bite sized pieces for easy dipping if your sauce isn’t too thick. This will work well for thin sauces or oil based sauces.
