Homemade Croutons

I love croutons, but I hate the fact that most of the ones you buy are hard as a rock.  So, one day I decided to wing it and try my own.  Huge success–very easy and yummy.  My favorite kind of recipe!

What you need:

3 pieces of bread (you can use white or wheat)

1 tsp. Mrs. Dash garlic and herb

½ tsp salt

1-2 tbsp olive oil

Black Pepper, optional

What to do:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Using a bread knife (or other serrated knife), cut bread into 1 inch squares.
  3. Spread bread pieces into baking pan, in a single layer.
  4. Drizzle with olive oil.  Sprinkle on Mrs. Dash, Salt, and pepper if desired.
  5. Bake for 5 minutes, stir around with spatula.  Bake an additional 3-5 minutes.  Watch them closely, as they burn easily.

Note:  If you happen to like the hard-as-a-rock croutons, decrease baking temperature to about 350 and increase baking time to about 15-20 minutes.

Now, add them to a yummy breaded chicken salad:
