"Simply Croutons"

These croutons are so simple to make and even better to eat. Once you've tried these you won't ever use store bought again. Here's all you need:

1 loaf bread (the staler the better)
1/2 cup olive oil
2 Tbls of garlic (more to taste)
1 Tbls sea salt (more to taste)
Cut bread into cubes. In a large bowl mix bread with garlic powder and salt mix well. Add olive oil making sure that all of the bread cubes are covered. Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 for 6 minutes turn bread over with spatula and bake for 6 more minutes. Let cool and enjoy on salads, soups or right out of the container.

These were yummy - I can vouch for them being yummy right out of the container since I had them for breakfast and lunch today, LOL!

I make mine almost the same - I use equal amounts of butter and light olive oil and I use minced garlic instead of powder, and add Italian seasonings - all sauteed first for about 5 minutes and then poured over the bread cubes and baked.

Excellent job on the post! Don't forget to link it up to Monday Munchies :-)

Hey, I've been wanting to learn how to do that - and here you've laid it all out for me. How terrific. I always have stale bread and there are two crouton monsters in the house. Thanks!!
