Here's the awesome thing about croutons: they're meant to be crunchy.
That means if you've made homemade bread (like, say, the basic bread from my last post) and it's going stale, there's a way to make 'em tasty again.
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- Garlic powder, to taste
*the amount of oil, salt and pepper will depend on the amount of bread you have. But don't worry - croutons are easy!
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Cut the bread into cubes and toss with the oil, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
- Cook until the pieces are crunchy (the time will vary, but maybe 15 minutes or so).
