Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cut bread into cubes and toss with oil, salt & pepper and a generous dusting of parm. Arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet and cook until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Add to your soup or salad while still warm.

I love cooking up a small batch of homemade croutons and tossing in a salad while they are still a little warm. Trust me.
