Have you been laying out good money for boxes of croutons? Look what you’re getting in a box of Marie Calendar’s Classic Seasoned Croutons:
How about making your own croutons for a fraction of the cost and without all the unpronounceable ingredients from leftover bread? This is a wonderful use for day old or oops overbaked specials, you can find if you don’t normally extra bread.
- 2 TBSP butter
- 2 TBSP Extra virgin olive oil
- 1 clove garlic – finely minced
- approx 2 tsp Italian seasoning
- 4 cups bread cut into cubes
Preheat the oven to 400F.
Place the butter, olive oil, garlic, and Italian seasoning in a microwave safe dish. Microwave on high for approximately 30 seconds, just long enough to melt the butter. Stir.
In a large bowl toss the cubed bread with the melted butter and seasoning.
Spread the seasoned bread cubes on a baking sheet, in a single layer. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes until the bread is toasted.
Store in an airtight container.
