Easy

Ingredients

  • One 12-ounce baguette (about 24 inches long)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil 
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • 1 clove garlic, minced 

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

To make croutons, pull the baguette into 3/4-inch chunks. To make crostini, pull the baguette into 1 1/2- to 2-inch chunks.

Combine the oil, pepper, salt and garlic in a bowl. Add the bread chunks and toss to coat with the seasonings.

Spread the chunks in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake until the edges are golden brown and crunchy, 6 to 8 minutes.

Cool the croutons or crostini to room temperature and use them immediately or store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 days.
