Easy Recipe for Croutons


Recipe for croutons


I love bread.

Or rather, I love good bread. Yes yes, I'm a tea snob, I'm a music snob, and evidently I'm a bread snob too. But that love is a difficult one sometimes. Because no matter how awesome the bread, it usually goes stale way too quickly, or at least quicker than I can eat it. And wasting half a loaf is sad :(

So once upon a time, in the not-so-distant past, I had a beautiful Italian loaf in my cupboard. And as bread is wont to do, it went stale. But instead of getting all sad and passive about it like normal, I decided to be proactive about the situation... by making croutons.

I just diced up my stale leftovers into little squares. Then used about 1/2 to a Tsp of butter in a frying pan, to fry those bad boys up.

That's it! Easiest recipe ever. Also, they are easy to store... I used a big plastic baggie. What a lucky day for this loaf of bread... it will never be stale ever again! I could also see trying different varieties. Like pumpernickel... OR ROSEMARY. Omg, the possibilities are endless.

Fresh off the frying pan. Not wasting food is pretty rad :P

  3. I love bread too. I love adding different things to salad to make it more interesting and also slightly less healthy :) But it's still better than eating just those things without the salad. My favourite is baked potato cubes, or chips in disguise :D I've never had croutons on salad, I'll have to give it a try.

  4. Yum! I too love a good loaf of bread, but it always goes stale before we can eat it all with just the two of us in the house. Although, homemade croutons are a practical and tasty solution!

  6. homemade croutons are one of life's simple pleasures! (i may be a bread snob as well..though i never actually thought about it! and i'm sooo a music snob too--see we have things in common!) these are great flavored as well. i like to add dried spices/seasonings or fry them in a flavor infused oil (like roasted garlic infused olive oil). but buttery is just as delectable! your salad looks super yummy! <3 haley

  9. I love bread too! It physically angers me when people talk badly about bread. Not only do I think it doesn't make you fat but I also think that it is very good for you.
