Today, you get a bonus post because you may find it useful in tomorrow's tastey recipe. We're making croutons! I have to thank the wonderful ladies at Like Mother, Like1 Daughter for their tutorial on how to make croutons. I had never made my own until they posted it and I fell in love and will probably never buy them from a store again, especially since I tend to always have some old stale bread still around that is just perfect for croutons. I need to make some garlic croutons that were called for specifically in recipe so I changed up the seasoning and came up with these.
Garlic Parmesan Croutons
- 3-4 slices of bread or a few hot dog buns.
- 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder or granulated garlic
- 1 tablespoon dry parsley flakes
- 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan Cheese
Cut bread into 1/2 inch cubes. Pour half or the olive oil in an empty bowl. Swish it around to coat the bottom of the bowl. Dump in half of the bread cubes. Drizzle with half of the olive oil. Add remaining bread cubes then drzzle with the remaining oil. Gently toss the bread and the oil until bread is evenly coated with oil. Add the garlic, cheese, and parsley. Toss again to evenly coat bread with the seasoning. Spread bread on a cookie sheet in 1 even layer. Bake at 400F for 8 minutes
