Homemade Croutons

We made some of our French Lentil soup a little while back, and instead of buying croutons at the store, we decided to try our hand at making our own. We figured we could control the salt content and add plenty of pepper like we like. You actually won't believe how simple they are to make.

Here's what you need:
1 loaf crusty bread (we used sourdough, but whatever you want is fine)
Olive oil to coat
Kosher salt and pepper
Any other spices you may want to add

Here's what you do:
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.

Slice your bread into cubes and lay out on a cookie sheet.

Coat with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss around to make sure they're well coated.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until crunchy on the outside. The amazing part is they'll still be slightly chewy on the inside.
