Croutons

I make my own croutons. Been doing it for a few months now, and my husband is thrilled. If I’m not watching, he will eat them all before I make the salad or soup they are to accompany. He thinks of them as his own personal nibbles.

I start with really good French bread that I get at Whole Foods. I keep loaves of this bread in the freezer for all sorts of uses, not just croutons. The bread is excellent for sandwiches, and I like it toasted for breakfast. It comes in handy when we have pasta dishes, too.

After cutting the bread into bite-sized pieces, I sprinkle on a good amount of olive oil, then salt and pepper, and bake about 10 minutes in a 400 degree oven. If I remember, I stir the pieces about mid way. Most of the time, though, I forget about the bread until I hear the buzzer. They’re fine without being turned.

Tonight they will adorn bowls of split pea soup, and there should be enough left over for Terry to munch on tomorrow.

    Thanks for sharing! It sounds simple enough that even I could do it.
