frugal recipe // 15 minute croutons

We somehow ended up with a pretty stale, almost complete loaf of whole grain bread. Since Kyle had already replaced it, I knew it wouldn't be eaten in it's current form. I froze half to make into breadcrumbs later, and for the other half croutons were born! They're super easy to make. Here's how I make mine:

Easy 15 Minute Croutons
6-10 slices of bread
olive oil
garlic powder
herbs or spices

Preheat oven to 400°
Cut slices of bread into small pieces, however small or large you want your croutons
Lightly coat with olive oil
Season with spices - however you choose to season your croutons is up to you, but I shook garlic powder and parsley over my batch
Bake for 8-10 minutes, until hard (but not burnt!)
Remove from oven and allow to cool
Store in airtight container, use within a week

You could mix these up anyway you'd like. Parmesan, basil, lemon pepper. The ideas are endless! If you make some, let me know!
