Best Croutons Ever!


Best Croutons Ever!

As I am prone to do, I modified the Pioneer Woman’s recipe a bit.

Cast of Characters:

Italian  Bread, olive oil, garlic cloves, fresh rosemary, sea salt. You can use  French bread or whatever.  You could also try different herbs or crushed red pepper. And/or flaxseed! (Occasionally, I like to sneak a tad of nutrition into stuff.)
*Preheat oven to 200 degrees

*Cut bread into 1 inch cubes and spread onto a baking sheet

*Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in small skillet over low heat on the stove

*Peel  and crush -don’t chop- two cloves of garlic and put them in the oil.  Stir the cloves around for 3-5 minutes, then remove them from the oil  with a spoon.

*Remove the leaves from a couple of stems of rosemary. Finely chop the leaves and stir into the oil.

* Drizzle the oil mixture over the bread cubes and toss them up with your hands.  Sprinkle lightly with sea salt.

*Bake at 200 for 45 minutes. After the 45 minutes is up, crank the oven up to 400.  Bake 6-8 minutes or until golden brown.

Absolutely AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS if I may say so!

Serve croutons with soup, salad, or alone as a snack.
