Steep minced garlic in olive oil. Let it sit for about 15 minutes. Strain the oil into a large bowl and then press the garlic against a fine mesh sieve with the back of a spoon to collect as much garlic oil as possible.

Toss with the seasoned olive oil and 2 to 3 tablespoons of shredded parmesan cheese.
spread bread cubes
Spread bread in a single layer on a heavy-rimmed baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes, tossing once during cooking until the bread is toasted and a nice golden brown.
