Cut or tear a piece per person of hearty country-style bread, ideally a whole grain artisan type. Put the bread pieces in a bowl and drizzle over extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle with a little salt, pepper, and ½ tsp of garlic powder. In a small frying pan on medium heat, toast the bread pieces, turning and stirring often until the bread crisps. Alternatively, bake the bread pieces in a 350° F / 175° C oven for about 20 to 25 minutes. Check often, stirring to toast evenly.
