|EVERY FEW MINUTES|
|HOMEMADE CROUTONS FOR SOUP OR SALAD|
1 loaf bread, cut into small cubes
1/2 c. olive oil
1 tbsp. butter, melted
2 large garlic cloves, minced
1/3 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1-2 tbsp. dry or fresh parsley
1/4 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. thyme
1/4 tsp. celery seed
pinch of salt
Combine ingredients (except bread). Using a pastry brush, brush both sides of slices with oil mix. Cut into small squares. Another way to make croutons is to cut the bread into squares first, then pour the seasoning mixture onto baking pan and stir the croutons to coat. To make sure all are coated, they can be sprayed very quickly with olive oil spray (do not use any other kind of spray).
Arrange in single layers on cookie sheets.
Bake at 300°F for 10-15 minutes or until golden and fragrant.
Allow to cool and store in an airtight container. Keeps 4 weeks, or may be frozen for up to 6 months.
