Gluten Free Croutons

1/2 c extra virgin olive oil
3 tsp fresh herbs (use what will compliment your entree)
3 cloves minced garlic
freshly ground pepper to taste
salt to taste
1/2 c grated Parmesan cheese
5-6 slices gluten free bread, cut into small cubes

Preheat oven to 275 degrees. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, herbs, garlic, pepper, and salt. Stir to mix. In a large bowl, toss the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Add the herbed oil mixture a little at a time, tossing to coat after each addition. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the bread cubes evenly on top. Place in the oven and bake for 45 minutes - or until the bread looks lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let sit to harden for another 1/2 to 1 hour before serving.

Note - store in zipper bag or air tight container if not using immediately.
