I love to get the fresh baked bread from the local grocery store, but it starts to get stale so quickly. Instead of letting the stale bread go to waste, I’ve started using it to make homemade croutons for our dinner salads. It’s really easy!
What you’ll need:
Melted Butter or Olive Oil
(I used Olive Oil)
Garlic Salt (optional)
Parmesan Cheese (optional)
Cut the crust off the bread slices.
Cut the bread slices into cubes.
Evenly coat the bread cubes with the butter or olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic salt, parmesan cheese, or really any seasoning you would like!
Lay out the cubes on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until browned.
Let them cool and store them in an air tight container. Add them to your soup or salad for an extra burst of crunchy flavor! Nomnom!
