I made fresh croutons this week and I have enjoyed them since. Just thought I'd share how:) I had a 1/3 of a loaf of bread that was going stale so I thought I'd make some. There were about 5 or 6 slices of bread.
I preheat my oven to 400 degrees. I toasted the bread in my pop up toaster and then when they were back to room temp I cut them into pieces. I placed them in a mixing bowl and sprinkled parsley flakes and garlic all over them. Then I poured about 1/2 a cup of olive oil on them and stirred it up. I placed them on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven. I let them stay in about...7 to 8 minutes. Then set them out on the counter to cool. When cool I placed in a ziplock bag. You'll never buy croutons again!
