  • Bread cubed in desired size
  • Olive oil
  • Spices
  • Salt
  • 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.
