the everything crouton

Croutons are crunchy, delicious and easy to make.
When you buy bread, there always seems to be some weird shaped pieces on the ends. There isn’t anything wrong with the end, but the only reason you would ever touch it is to get to the next slice. Unless you are desperate for bread, you’d probably throw it out. Here is a quick and easy way to make them into a great snack or topping.
How to make your odds and ends popular.
- Day old bread, bread ends, bread you just don’t feel like eating anymore (I used whole wheat bread)
- Olive Oil
Seasoning I used (use whatever flavors you enjoy)
- Garlic powder
- Dried basil
- Trader Joe’s 21 seasoning salute
- Sesame seeds
- Chili flakes
- Fresh ground pepper
- Touch of honey
Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 350°F
Step 2: Cut bread into cubes and toss in a large bowl
Step 3: Drizzle olive oil and add your seasoning then toss
Step 4: Spread your seasoned cubes onto a sheet pan
Step 5: Bake for 15 minutes on the middle rack (toss around 7-8 minute mark)
Step 6: Let it cool for a few minutes then you’re ready to eat!
