Have you ever made your own croutons before? They are so easy and taste much better than store bought. Plus it uses up any old bread you might have on the counter, just waiting to be thrown out. With Soup Season here, croutons are a great topping to add to creamy soups. Give it a try, I promise you will not be disappointed.
Homemade Seasoned Croutons
4-5 Cups Day Old Dried Bread Cubes *See Note
1 Stick Butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon Garlic Salt
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper
1 Tablespoon Dried Chives or Parsley
* Make sure to cube the old bread and lay it out to dry overnight.
Preheat oven to 250 degree’s
Place dried bread into a gallon sized plastic bag. Mix together the butter, garlic salt, pepper and chives. Pour over bread in bag, seal bag and shake to coat all the bread evenly. Evenly spread bread onto a foil lined baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, stir and continue to bake in 10 minute increments until bread is golden brown. Allow to cool on pan before storing in an airtight plastic bag or container. That is all there is to it. ~ Lark
