Today on Tasty Tuesday, I am sharing an easy recipe for Homemade Croutons. These are seriously simple and you can adjust the seasonings to whatever you enjoy. I typically make these with old, stale bread. This batch I actually used buns that were in the freezer too long. Once I made them into croutons, you never knew! Love not having to waste food.
1 loaf of bread or package of buns
herbs such as italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper
Cube bread/buns and put into bowl.
Drizzle with olive oil.
Toss to cover bread completely. Sprinkle with seasonings. Spread on rimmed cookie sheet in a single layer. Put into a pre-heated 375 degree oven. Bake 10 minutes, turn/toss, bake 5 minutes longer. Check to see if the cubes are toasted.
Remove when toasted and allow to cool. Store in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
