Ingredients

  • Ingredients:

  • 1

    regular baguette, cut into 1″ cubes (or enough bread to make 4 to 5 cups o’ cubes)

  • 1/2

    tsp. salt

  • 1

    tsp. black pepper

  • 1/4

    tsp. cayenne pepper (or more to taste)

  • 1/2

    tsp. paprika (I have used smoked paprika, too, and it’s pretty damn good for a variation.)

  • 2

    tsp. dried parsley

  • 1

    tsp. dried basil

  • 2 to 3

    tsp. garlic paste (see above in the intro)

  • 1/3

    cup o’ olive oil or bacon fat

  • Season salt

Directions

Preheat the oven to 325°. Combine all of the ingredients except the bread in a small bowl. Put the bread cubes in a big tossing bowl (a toss pot, if you will). Pour the oily herby mixture over the bread cubes. Using your hands or a big ol’ spoon, toss the bread with the seasonings until all of the bread cubes are well covered in it. Spread the cubes out on a baking sheet in an even layer. Bake these for 30 minutes, turning them once after 15 minutes of baking. Remove them from the oven and let cool until you’re ready to use them. Store whatever you don’t use in an airtight container. Piece of cake.
