My son and I love to eat croutons and to have some on hand, I decided to make my own.
This is an easy way to make croutons at home.
-Ready made garlic butter (sold in the bread department of your grocery store)
-2 loaves of French bread a day or two old
(If you cannot find ready made garlic butter see *NOTE below)
1.Preheat oven 350 degrees F (174 degrees C)
2. Slice loaves in half, spread garlic butter on bread evenly.
3. Cut into cubes about 1 inch (make sure bread is hard and not too soft, softness makes it messy to cut)
4. Spread on baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes or until lightly brown, check frequently to prevent burning.
*NOTE: If you cannot find garlic butter ready made, you may substitute it for garlic bread ready for baking or in a large saute pan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in garlic, a pinch of salt or your favorite herbs; cook and stir for 1 minute or so. Add bread cubes and then toss to coat, then follow step 4 above.
Done and enjoy! They are also tasty in onion soup, try it!
