Start tossing all your bread heals, French bread and baguette ends into a bread bag and toss in the freezer. You are now making your own Croutons!
- Old bread (or new)
- Granulated Garlic - or two cloves pressed threw garlic press
- Dried Thyme
- Dried Parsley
- Olive Oil
After collecting enough bread to fill a large mixing bowl, remove from freezer and thaw. Cut bread into crouton size pieces, some like them a little larger what ever you prefer. Put into a very large mixing bowl.
Season all over the top of the bread pieces with Salt, Pepper, Granulated Garlic, Thyme (1/2 tsp at a time, you can always add more Thyme) and Parsley. Toss to mix well.
Drizzle with olive oil and toss so all the bread pieces are coated evenly with spices and oil.
Place onto cookie or baking sheet, brown in oven at 350 until nicely browned.
Sprinkle all over the top of your Caesar, Greek and or Toss Salads. Store extra croutons in a Tupperware container or zip lock bag.
