garlic cloves, peeled, top quarter sliced off
stale bread, any amount, sliced (white bread is best, but any kind works)
olive oil

Preheat the oven to 450° F. Brush both sides of the bread with a thin layer of olive oil. Place the bread on a baking sheet and sprinkle tops lightly with salt. Bake until lightly golden, 5 to 7 minutes, checking frequently to make sure bread doesn’t burn. Remove the bread from the oven and rub all over with the cut side of the garlic cloves. Cut the bread into smaller pieces if desired. The bread is ready to be used or stored.
