Homemade Croutons

  • Bread of any kind
  • olive oil (approximately ¼ cup oil per ½ loaf)
  • salt, to taste
  • pepper, to taste
  • Optional: Parmesan cheese, dried herbs (basil, oregano, thyme, rosemary), garlic powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, or put in a grill basket onto the grill. Using a bread knife, cut the bread into ½ inch by ½ inch cubes. In a large bowl, toss bread cubes with enough olive oil to lightly coat. Add salt and pepper to taste and any seasonings you prefer. Once cubes are evenly and lightly coated, pour bread onto a baking pan lined with aluminum foil (for easy clean-up). Bake bread in oven for 20-30 minutes until bread is golden and very crunchy. Toss cubes several times during baking. Delicious, and cheaper than store bought!
