Croutons are so easy to make at home, and always taste better than the store bought kind! Here are some simple instructions on how to make your own.
Start with your choice of bread, cut it into cubes.
Put a tablespoon or two of butter (or Olive Oil) into a pan, let it get hot and arrange your bread cubes in the pan. Season liberally with your favorite herbs and spices, parmesan cheese, sesame seeds, etc. Anything you like.
Cook on Medium High heat until the bottom of the bread cubes start to brown. If they are starting to stick add another small tablespoon of butter, then mix the cubes up in the pan to coat them with the seasonings.
Continue to let them cook until they are brown and crispy on both sides. Watch them closely and shake the pan often - They can burn quickly if you're not paying attention.
Now they are ready to snack on, put into salads or soups, or on top of Macaroni and Cheese.
