8 slices dry French bread - -- (1 inch thick)
1/4 cup olive oil
2 cloves garlic cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons mixed fresh herbs -- minced (such as oregano -- thyme, and rosemary)

Preparation / Directions:

Without removing the crusts, cut the bread into 1-inch cubes. Do not worry if the cubes are not perfectly square. One of their charms is their irregular homemade look. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the garlic, reduce the heat to low, and sauté the garlic for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the bread cubes and cook slowly over low heat until golden and crusty, about 4 or 5 minutes on each side. When done, sprinkle the cubes with the salt and herbs, turn a few times in the pan, and then remove to a paper towel to drain and cool. The croutons may be stored for several days in a closed paper bag. Makes 4 cups of savory croutons.
