  • Coat a large saute pan with olive oil. I used approximately 3 tablespoons olive oil, but you can use more if need be.
  • Add in the garlic and red pepper and cook over medium heat. Cook until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  • Toss in the bread cubes and seasonings then stir to coat in the oil and spices.
  • Continue to cook over medium -low and stir until the bread is crusty, golden, and fully crisped.

  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container.


These can be stored in an airtight container on the counter for up to 2 weeks.
