From Scratch Croutons

 Good crusty bread, like a French baguette or sourdough loaf
 ¼ cup Olive Oil
 Sea Salt
 Black Pepper
 Optional: Italian seasonings
 Little Leaf Farms Lettuce, for serving

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


Cut your bread into cubes, about ¾ inch in size until you have about 4 cups of cubes.


Toss the cubed bread in a large bowl with 2-3 Tbsp of olive oil, until the pieces are well-coated but not soggy. Sprinkle the cubes with sea salt, fresh black pepper, and if desired, a pinch of Italian seasoning.


Arrange the cubed pieces in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake in the 350-degree oven for 10-12 minutes until golden brown, tossing halfway through the bake time.


Remove and let the croutons cool completely before adding to your favorite salad.
