Homemade Garlic & Cheese Croutons


4- 6 inch sub rolls, cubed
olive oil
approx. 1 Tbsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup grated pecorino
a handful of fresh chopped parsley


Preheat your oven to 385 degrees.
Place the cubed bread onto a large baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, the garlic powder and salt. Arrange the bread in a single layer and pop into the oven.
Bake for about 15-18 minutes until the bread is golden and dried out.
Take the pan out of the oven, give an additional drizzle of olive oil and toss the cheese and parsley with the tossed croutons. Pop back into the oven for 5-8 minutes.
Go ahead and give one a taste, add any additional garlic, salt or cheese as needed while they are still nice and hot.
Allow to cool on the pan.
