Do you ever get down to the last 7 or 8 slices of bread, and it's dried out? Well, don't throw it away! You can use it to make these yummy croutons. You can use white bread, wheat bread, french bread, the options are endless! You can also change up the seasoning to suit your taste. Use Ranch dressing mix to make Ranch croutons, or spice it up with some fajita seasoning! If you don't use croutons, make them, and crush them up to make seasoned bread crumbs. Roll chicken, or pork chops in them and bake!
4 tbs melted butter
1 clove of garlic, minced (I used 1/2tsp of pre-minced garlic in a jar)
8 slices of bread, cut into cubes (any kind)
2 tsp Italian Seasoning
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. In a small bowl, melt butter, add garlic and Italian Seasoning. Pour over bread cubes and toss well to coat. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until dry and crisp. Check frequently to prevent burning. Let cool, and store in a Ziplock bag.
