Croutons

Of course, we can make our own croutons! They are so much better than the stuff out of a can with preservatives! Make your salads come to live with homemade croutons!

Ingredients:
  • Day old bread, several slices
  • Pinch of salt
  • Olive oil in a fine mist-spray bottle
  • Assorted herbs to match the salad dressing

Directions:

This is simple! Cut the bread into small cube-sized chunks that you would like for your salad. I prefer about 1-inch by 1/2 inch by 1/2 inch (in math, that's a "rectangular prism"). Place them in a mixing bowl "spritz" with olive oil--just enough to get the herbs of your selection to stick to the bread! Sprinke in the herbs of your choice plus a pinch of salt and toss.

Place the tossed bread on a baking sheet and place in the oven on very low heat--around 150 degrees F and slowly dry over several hours.

Thank you very much for your comments, and for getting back to me on your post! I just had a hard time finding it in the archive.

Anyone interested in politics at any level would find your electoral college posting a good read and I hope they go there to do so!
