homemade croutons

who doesn't love an amazing crouton?
it's like the bright spot in my day salad.

so, i decided to try to make a homemade version...
so crazy easy, and totally worth the effort.

i didn't have any left over bread at my house,
although i hear these are even better with some stale bread.

4 slices of french bread
4 tablespoons butter
1 clove garlic (i always add more)
1/2 tablespoon italian seasoning
1 tablespoon grated parmesan

*recipe adapted from allrecipes*


1. preheat oven to 350 degrees

2. slice bread into crouton sized pieces
place in a large bowl with cheese

(i doubled the recipe)

3. in large saucepan, melt butter, garlic and seasoning together for 2 minutes

4. pour melted butter mixture over bread and stir to coat

5. spread in a single layer on a baking sheet.
bake for 15ish minutes or until dry & crunchy.
check frequently and stir a couple of times to prevent burning.

if your bread is stale, bake time will be shorter,
if it's fresh, you'll need to bake for longer
(mine took about 30 minutes)

i seriously could not stop eating these.
so tasty. like only half made it to my salad. ha!
