Breads Quick Recipes Tips

Homemade Croutons

At any given moment, I have a few almost-empty bags of bread in my fridge.  I don’t like to throw out the heels, but I don’t like to eat them either.  So, I store them in a big Ziploc in the freezer until I have enough to turn them into croutons.  It’s an easy way to turn leftover, odd-sized, or stale bread into a delicious accompaniment to soup, salads, or cheese platters.

Homemade Croutons

1. Preheat oven to 375.

2.  Line a baking sheet with foil.

3. Tear up random pieces of bread — can be different kinds — and place on baking sheet.

4.  Toss bread with extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle of salt, pepper, dried rosemary or thyme, and grated Parmesan cheese.

(Or, just olive oil, salt & pepper)

5.  Bake for 7-10 minutes or until crisp but still bite-able.
