'Tis the Season for Salad - Croutons

Croutons are a necessity when it comes to salads. Just recently I read how bad the store bought croutons are for you. Croutons are very simple to make yourself but can be a bit intimidating. Here is my (rough) version of making your own croutons.


Couple pieces day(s) old bread

Butter both sides of the bread. Cut into small squares. Place on baking sheet. Move oven rack to highest level in your oven. Place croutons in the oven and broil. When they start to brown, remove from oven. *It won't be long so you need to stand there and watch them or they will burn (personal experience). Flip each crouton over and put back in oven. They will still seem soft even after they are done, but leave them on the counter for a bit and will harden up into awesome croutons.
