For the garlic bread crumb:

  2. Add the crushed garlic and cook until just fragrant.
  3. Crush the bread with the back of a spoon in a bowl, and add the crumbed bread to the pan.
  4. You can do this in a random manner, leaving few bigger bits with the crumbs, for added texture.
  5. Cook for a minute or so until just about toasty and golden, on a low flame.
