Expert Tips

No need to follow this recipe to a tee! Why not use other herbs in place of the basil and oregano?

We doubt you'll have leftover bread, but if you do, don't throw it away. Even just a few extra pieces will make great salad croutons. Simply cube the herbed bread and bake in a 350°F oven until toasted. Store in an airtight container.
