BREAD CRUMBS OR CROUTONS HOMEMADE (SALLYE)
Turn oven to 325º
Spread the bread pieces out in a single layer.
Gently mix the bread so that all surfaces are covered with oil.
Use your choice of herbs/spice seasoning mix to coat the bread.

HERBES DE PROVENCE MIX (SALLYE)
SOUTHWESTERN SEASONED SALT (SALLYE)
DIY "MRS DASH" SEASONING MIX (SALLYE)
These are some I use at different times, but use your favorites.
Sometimes I add Kraft Parmesan cheese to the seasoning mix.
After 10 minutes, check bread. Stir and continue baking until bread is a toasty brown. (about 10 more minutes)
NOTE: FOR CROUTONS, STOP HERE.
Place bread pieces in food processor and process on medium to high speed until desired coarseness is reached.
Dependent on the amount of bread you've toasted, you may need to process more than one batch.
So easy and so much better and cheaper than "store bought" bread crumbs.
