Homemade Croutons are great on salads, in soup or just as a snack. They are a delicious way to use up bread that could go to waste.

- Bread cubed in desired size
- Olive oil
- Parmesan cheese optional
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Drizzle olive oil on a rimmed baking sheet.
Place cubed bread in a large bowl. Lightly drizzle with olive oil and liberally add spices and sprinkle with salt. I will generally use an Italian herb blend or Herbs de Provence. Stir and repeat olive oil drizzle, herbs and salt.
Spread bread cubes out on a prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until bread is browned and no longer soft.
Cool and store in an airtight container for up to one week at room temperature.
