Our Homemade Croutons
Last time when we went food shopping we were after some nice croutons to add to our salad. Once we notice that you can pay up to £2 for a small bag of croutons, Mark decided to save this money and make some on his own.
This is actually a great way of “recycling” your left over bread. And, once made and placed in a zip bag or an air tight container, they will last a week or until you have a need for them.
So what do you need to make quick and easy homemade croutons?
– – Bread – any bread will work, so the choice is yours, but remember the “nicer” the bread the “nicer” the crouton we used a multi-seed rustic from Waitrose
– – 3tbsp of olive oil
– – Salt
– – Pepper, ideally fresh ground pepper
– – A pinch of mixed herbs
Identify the bread you wish to use and cut it into even slices
Cut the slices into sugar cube sized pieces,
if you want your croutons to be more elegant remove the crust
Place them into a large bowl and drizzle the olive oil over the bread
Sprinkle over the salt, pepper and mixed herbs and stir well but gently, in order to spread evenly
Place on a baking sheet and bake in a 200 degrees preheated oven for 15 minutes or until golden brown
Remove from the oven and allow to cool
Now, you are ready to eat! Serve with your favourite salad or soup
