Don’t throw out that old bread, Make croutons! Here’s a simple recipe you can make with bread you may ordinarily throw out.
To make this recipe you will need the following ingredients:
3 tbs butter melted
3 tbs olive oil
6-7 slices of bread cubed
(I like to use homemade but regular loaf bread works just as well!)
1 rounded tsp garlic powder
1 rounded tsp dried parsley
Combine melted butter, olive oil, parsley and garlic powder.
Pour butter mixture over bread cubes and mix well.
Spread the seasoned bread cubes evenly on a baking sheet. (I use a Silpat, but I use one for everything!)
Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes has passed, turn croutons and continue to bake for an additional 15 minutes.
When your croutons are done, they will be light and crunchy! Serve them with your favorite salad dressing or use them in a stuffing recipe!
Store in an air-tight container for weeks!!
