Homemade Croutons

There is leftover everything and yet, I don't want to waste a thing.   I had a leftover baguette from my favorite bistro and bakery and thought since we'll be eating lots of salad (indulged in too much food over the holidays) that homemade croutons would be perfect.   It adds crunch, flavor and texture to any salad and is super easy.

Homemade Croutons

Ingredients:
  • 1 day old baguette, cubed
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 2 T dried onions
  • 2 T dried garlic
  • 2 T dried rosemary
  •  1/2 t celery salt
  • salt and pepper
Directions:  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cube day old baguette and place on baking sheet.
 
 Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine dried herbs, salt and pepper and set aside. 
Drizzle bread cubes with olive oil and sprinkle with seasoning.
 
Place in oven and bake for 8 - 10 minutes or until golden brown.   Remove from oven and cool.
 
  Keep croutons in zip lock baggie and use wherever you want to.

I agree with Lizzy! Making your own croutons allows you to put any spice or herb you want. They are rich, flavorful and super satisfying! Great Post Stacie!
