Homemade Croutons


Homemade Croutons 
If you haven't made croutons before you are missing out! I save the ends of the fresh artisan bread, have you made this yet? I put all the ends in a ziplock throughout the week. I make bread crumbs and store in the freezer or croutons with the ends of the bread. Make them, you won't be sorry. 

Okay enough talk, here's how I make them:
  • Old bread pieces cut into cubes
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • garlic powder
  • cracked pepper
  • dried herbs (your favorite)
Heat oven to 275 degrees. Now this is not an exact science so no measurements. Grab a cookie sheet and put the cubes on the pan. Drizzle the olive oil on top of the cubes, not too much you don't want them drenched. Toss the cubes around to incorporate the olive oil. Now sprinkle all the seasonings on to taste, toss the cubes again. Put the sheet in the oven and bake for about 10 minutes, it should start to smell really yummy. Open the oven and toss the cubes again and bake for another 10 minutes or so, until crunchy.
