  • 4 cups cubed stale bread
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp Kosher salt


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • In a large bowl, combine the bread, garlic powder, and salt. Drizzle olive oil over bread while stirring. Stir well until bread is coated by all ingredients and olive oil is absorbed
  • Spread the bread cubes into an even layer on a sheet pan. Don’t crowd the pan. Bake for 10 minutes, or until golden brown and crisp. If you’re using super fresh bread, they’ll take a little longer to become golden brown. If the bread is stale and dry, it may brown faster, so keep an eye on it!
  • Remove and allow to cool before serving.
