Leftover bread has so many uses, but with salad season upon us (yes, those lettuce and spinach plants are coming up in the garden) croutons are a great thing to make.
Here are the ingredients needed to make a good sized batch of croutons:
- 1 loaf sourdough bread
- Grape seed oil
- Mix of spices: Onion powder, garlic powder, salt, basil, thyme, savory, sage, or whatever other spices you tend to favor
Cut the loaf into cubes, making sure the cubes are not too large (big croutons are just too hard to eat) and then put the cubes into a large baking pan.
Drizzle the grape seed oil over the the bread and mix until all of the pieces are coated.
Put a mix of the spices you have chosen for the croutons over the top of the bread cubes, mix...
...and then put them in the oven at 300 (stirring often) until the cubes are dried.
