Croutons from left-over bread
If you’re like me, you hate throwing things out! That’s why anytime my bread starts to go stale, I look for ways to use it. My favorite is bread pudding! But I’m trying to avoid fatty desserts lately, that’s why when it came time for me to make a salad for company, I got really excited to use my left-over bread.
I just cut the bread into cubes, tossed it with some melted butter, 1 clove of minced garlic, and voila! I popped the cubes into the oven at 400 degrees for 6 minutes, tossed it around a bit, and let it bake for about 3 more minutes. Before they got too toasty, I took them out. They harden a little bit as they dry (and I like chewy croutons anyway). I encourage you to try them!
