Yesterday I thought about using up one of the last loaves, but it was as hard as a rock. And then I thought, "croutons!" I had never made croutons before. So I googled it! 'How to make croutons from stale bread'. I got a million recipes. Here's what I ended up doing. First you just cube the bread. I mentioned that my loaf was rock hard, so first I put a wet paper towel around it and microwaved for a minute and that softened it right up. Then I sliced and sliced and sliced. *(By the way I made the cutting board in woodshop in tenth grade. And my mom still uses it. Awwwwww...)
Here's what I look like when I'm slicing rock hard bread. I call it the 'Grandma Trudy' face. Also known as the 'Kelly concentrates' face.
You want 1 inch cubes.
Then I mixed a small bowl of olive oil and my seasonings. I used salt, pepper, basil, oregano, and garlic salt. Tons of all of it. You can use whatever you want. And about 2/3 cup of olive oil per 4 cups of cubed bread.
Here's what they look like when they're done.
|Super delicious. For reals.|
