  • 9 slices (cut about 1-inch thick) French Bread, cut into cubes
  • 12 tablespoons salted butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large OVEN SAFE skillet, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • Stir in garlic and cook for about 1 minute, or until fragrant.
  • Stir in parsley.
  • Add the bread cubes and toss to coat. Place the skillet directly into the oven. (Depending on the size of your skillet you may need to work in batches.)
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until crispy and lightly browned. (I removed the second batch at 9 minutes, so be sure to keep an eye on these so they don't burn! Every oven will vary.) You are looking for a toasted on the edges golden brown appearance.
