Croutons..

I had a salad yesterday but something was missing on the plate..the salad had no croutons. I love bread so much, so crouton is certainly another thing that I love too. I was thinking just now about making croutons. So, this is a recipe of Homemade croutons by Dainty Chef



Croutons
Ingredients:
  • 6 slices bread, crusts trimmed and cubed or 1 baguette, trimmed and cubed
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter or olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder and a pinch of salt OR 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes

What you’ll do:
  1. Preheat over to 300 degrees. 
  2. Mix all the ingredients together except for the bread. 
  3. Toss the butter mixture with the bread in a medium bowl until cubes are evenly coated. Spread coated bread cubes on a cookie sheet in a single layer. 
  4. Bake for 15 minutes. 
  5. Stir the croutons around and bake for an additional 15 minutes until done. Store croutons in air-tight container or ziploc bag.
