1 Preheat oven or toaster oven to 425 degrees F.

2 Cut up the bread into cubes and mix in a bowl with oregano, basil, and splash of lemon juice to coat.

3 Place bread cubes on a cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Check to make sure croutons are “browning” but not burning. Let cool for 10 minutes. Set aside croutons.

Cooking Tips

Recipe for roasted garlic. You can also buy roasted garlic from the market, just watch for added oil.

For the croutons, I pre-cube the bread and store it in the freezer until I am ready to use.
