Serves: 4-6
  • 1 loaf day-old French bread
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp basil (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Chop bread into cubes. Make sure they're bite-sized!
  3. Add bread cubes, olive oil, garlic powder and basil into a large bowl. Mix well, so that all bread cubes are coated nicely.
  4. Arrange bread cubes on a baking tray, lined with non-stick spray or a Silplat baking mat. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until firm to the touch and lightly browned.
  5. Allow to cool completely, then stick them in a freezer bag and pop in the freezer until needed. Thaw for 5 minutes before use.
