Home Made Croutons

Never throw away old stale bread.  Even garlic bread that the family did not finish.

Just store it in the fridge till you have enough on hand.

Cut into pieces and place in an iron skillet

Pour on lots of olive oil and toss well (the more the better).

Sprinkle with seasoning (I use a combo of garlic powder, paprika, celery salt, etc.) – whatever you want – and/or parm. cheese.  (I have even made them with curry powder)  Be creative.

Bake till good and crisp in a 400 degree oven.  (set your timer as they are easy to burn)

Serve in soups, salads, etc.

They are great in my soup recipees
