What seasoning should I use for these croutons?

I have a multigrain fig and anise bread I took out of the freezer yesterday for entertaining, and I still have quite a lot of it left. I want to make croutons, but I'm stumped on a seasoning that will go with the bread's flavour and still interact well with salads and soups. Suggestions?

I agree to keep it simple but I bet it would be nice with a little thyme if you have some on hand.

Thanks for the insight! I think that's what I will do.

If I'm using a great bread for croutons I'll sometimes stick with just olive oil and salt to keep it simple and let the flavor of the bread shine through.

Agree with Lindsay-Jean.
That way your guests can still taste the bread.
And you can add different seasonsings (aromatics, herbs, seeds) to the soup and the salad.
