Are croutons a favorite of yours? Our kids always eat them off of our salads. So, with the price of virtually everything going up, I decided to try a batch of homemade croutons to save some money.
How is that for a nice price, $1.04 for 16 oz. of croutons vs. $3.+ for a 5 oz. bag. I shopped smarter by buying my day old French bread on discount.
Croutons couldn't be easier. Slice the bread and then cube it up. After you get it all in a large mixing bowl drizzle it with 2-3 tbsp. of olive oil. Season as desired, I used garlic and sea salt.
Put it in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 10 minutes and then place under broiler on high
until browned. This makes them so chewy and good.
Fresh croutons are so much better than the pre-packaged kind. My teen boys consider this a great meal....and then they are all gone!
