I Love Croutons



Adding croutons to my salads always make it more special.  I love how these golden nuggets of toasted bread  add not just flavor but texture to my greens.  I make homemade croutons at least once a week.  Instead of throwing out stale bread I turn them into croutons.  Any type of bread works, even the ubiquitous white bread, better known as tasty to us Pinoys, will do.  I've even made croutons out of left-over pandesal.  All you really need is oil with minced garlic, seasoned with some salt and pepper, and add some dried basil if you like. Pour it over the cubed bread pieces, make sure each piece is coated with oil.  Then transfer it to an oven or even your oven toaster will do.  It takes about 20 minutes for them to turn into these crunchy golden nuggets of deliciousness. Great addition to your salads and soups, and even yummy enough to just munch on if you need a snack, just like what I do when there are no potato chips in pantry =)
