  • Leftover day-old bread - preferably either baguette or ciabatta
  • extra virgin olive oil


  • Tear day-old bread into coarse 1-inch shards;
  • Scatter the bread (we used ciabatta in this recipe) on a rimmed baking sheet;
  • Drizzle olive oil over bread
  • Mix with your hands and squeeze the bread so it soaks up the olive oil;
  • Pop into a 350-degree oven and toast for about 12 minutes
