Loaf of sourdough or a country style bread
freshly cracked black pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.
Remove all the crust from the loaf. Cut it into cubes and pulse in a food processor until the crumbs reach the texture you want.
Toss with some olive oil to lightly coat and pour onto the baking sheet, creating a thin, even layer of crumbs. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and season with sea salt and pepper.
Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
