Cut thick slices of bread - it doesn't have to be too fresh.
Remove crusts and cut the slices into cubes.
Put the cubes into a bowl, sprinkle with salt, pepper, herbs, crushed garlic and virgin olive oil - about a desert spoon of oil per slice of bread.
Toss everything around so that all the cubes are coated.
Line a baking sheet or roasting tray with baking paper, spread the cubes out in a single layer, and bake for around 10 minutes. Set a timer - it is easy to let them burn.
