Croutons

I want to make my own. I was wondering how to do it and what would be good to add in them.

I just take some French bread
slice it the thickness that you want
and cut it in to bite size squares.

melt some butter with garlic, salt, parsley and or oregano
and toss the bread squares gently around in the butter mixture.

Lay the squares on a tin foil lined baking sheet and toast in the oven. Turn them over as the sides get toasty.

I do the same thing, but I use olive oil instead of butter. I also vary the herbs depending on my mood or what I have on hand.

I have also made them in a skillet instead of the oven. No real reason I do one over the other.

Its a good way to use up day old or older breads you can use any kind of bread and if you make alot just put in a ziplcc and freeze until needed.

I use a skillet more, as I don't make many at a time, and I love using olive oil and rosemary.

I want to put garlic in mine. I just add garlic seasoning before I freeze the bread?

I would saute some chopped garlic in oil to impart the flavor and then add the bread. It will soak up all that yummy garlic oil that way.

By the way Butterz, I love your name

Any kinds of herbs or spices. Anything you can flavor oil with you can then use that oil for the croutons.
