Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400°F.

In a food processor, pulse the shallot and garlic until finely chopped. Add the butter and puree until nearly smooth. Season the garlic butter with salt and pepper and scrape into a large bowl.

Add the bread to the bowl and toss until coated. Spread the buttered bread on 2 large rimmed baking sheets. Bake for 15 minutes, until crisp on the outside, but chewy in the middle.

Season with salt and pepper and transfer to a shallow bowl. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve warm.
