Herbed Croutons

Serves 4

Ingredients:

8 slices seven-grain bread or baguette, cubed

1 tablespoon olive oil

Salt and freshly ground pepper

4 garlic cloves, very finely minced

3 tablespoons finely minced fresh Italian parsley

2 tablespoons finely minced fresh basil

1 tablespoon finely minced fresh oregano

2 teaspoons finely minced fresh thyme

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil.
  2. Lightly brush each side of the bread with oil.  Cut the slices into 1/4-inch cubes.  Spread the cubes in a single layer on the prepared sheet.  Sprinkle with the salt, pepper, and garlic.  Bake for 10 to 14 minutes, or until toasted.
  3. In a small bowl, combine the parsley, basil, oregano, thyme and 2 teaspoons of water, and mix well.  Sprinkle over the toasted croutons.  Bake 2 to 4 minutes more, stirring to coat each crouton evenly.  Cool completely on a rack.
