Home Made CROUTONS, holy yum+easy
Ima break it down for you ready..
Step one. rip or cut up day old bread. French bread, focaccia, rustic, ciabatta
Step two: heavily drizzle on your favorite oil-preferably a fancy olive oil
Step three:add chunky shavings of parmeggiano reggiano
Step who knows: sprinkle with garlic seasoning.. if using garlic salt well then by all means, don't add the chunky salt..
step cinco: toss and prepare on a baking dish with parchment paper so you can use all those delish bread crumbs and crispy cheese bits.
while you're at it, throw on a few slices later for a quick appetizer with your guests along side some fresh from the garden bruschetta.
Keep a close eye on these babies, they toast up real quick under the broiler. 2-5 minutes until golden. (don't have a broiler? try roasting them at 450 for 5-10 minutes or stove top works as well!
ps make these Croutons to have with this yummy and equally beautiful Tomato basil bisque soup.. ( post coming real soon)
