"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain
3 cups bread cut into ½ “ cubes 1 tsp. Baby Bam (see below) 1/3 cup olive oil 1 tsp. minced garlic
3 Tbsp. paprika 2 Tbsp. salt 2 Tbsp. dried parsley 2 tsp. onion powder 2 tsp. garlic powder 1 tsp. black pepper 1 tsp. dried oregano 1 tsp. dried basil 1 tsp. dried thyme ½ tsp. celery salt
Preheat the oven to 350º. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Put the bread cubes in a medium mixing bowl and season with the *Baby Bam. Combine the olive oil and the garlic in a blender and process on high speed for 30 seconds. Add the olive oil mixture to the bread cubes and toss to coat evenly. Spread the bread cubes evenly on the lined baking sheet and bake until lightly browned, about 20 minutes. Store in an airtight bag or container.
