Home-Made Croutons

Homemade Croutons

You take stale bread and the heels and cut them up into cube size pieces. I like mine a little larger but cut them however you like. Place cubes in a big bowl.

Melt 1/4 cup of butter in the microwave and drizzle over the bread cubes.  Toss to distribute butter.

Sprinkle 1 teaspoon dry Italian Seasoning Salad dressing over bread cubes and toss.

Spread bread cubes on a cookie sheet and bake in pre-heated 350 oven for 15 to 18 minutes.  Let cool and store in container.

YOU'RE GONNA LOVE THESE!  A great use for old bread and heels. With the cost of bread rising, I can't stand to throw it out. Plus, you get to control the amount of butter & salt on your croutons.  Enjoy!

If you have something you add to yours, please leave a comment. I'm up for new ideas!
