frugal never tasted so good

January 4, 2011

Who doesn’t love a big, fresh, healthy salad …. covered in croutons? Lucky for you (and maybe your new year’s resolutions), there’s no need to buy the vacuum packed, hydrogenated corn syrup soaked type. In fact, no need to buy them at all! Here’s a quick recipe you can use with any type of bread that you’re trying to use up:

2 slices bread, cubed
4 tbsp olive oil
garlic powder

Put the bread in a medium mixing bowl, and toss with the olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper (you guessed it…) to taste!

Spread in a single layer on a cookie sheet, and bake at  275 for 10 minutes. Stir, and bake for another 10 minutes until golden and crispy.

    Hey Beth,
    Try adding a little bit of grated Parmesan to your crouton mix to really spice them up! It gives them this super added flavor.

      Amy – that is a FABULOUS idea. And fortunately for this lactose-digesting-impaired girl, parmesan cheeses is one of the few I can eat 😉 I’ll give that a try tonight! Hope you’re doing well : )
