Preparation -- 10 minutes

PEEL and then roughly chop the garlic clove. HEAT olive oil in a medium-sized skillet and add the chopped garlic, let it simmer on low heat for a few minutes. Meanwhile, remove the bread crust and slice the bread into cubes.

REMOVE the garlic from the oil and add the diced bread to the olive oil to create croutons. Now get them crunchy on medium-high heat, which will only take a few minutes, toss them around a few times to prevent them from burning.

CHOP the parsley, dill or another kind of herbs. MIX together chopped herbs, sour cream, milk and lemon juice. Bring the sauce to taste using pepper and salt.

HEAT a grill pan and ADD the bacon. GRILL for a few minutes, or until the bacon is crunchy enough for your liking.
