I love to make my own fresh bread at home. The only problem? It expires rather quickly without all those preservatives you find in store bought bread. Never fear though, old bread can be quickly given a new lease of life as the best croutons you ever tasted!

Roughly chop the left over bread into half inch cubes. Sprinkle over a little olive oil, garlic powder and dried basil. Salt liberally. No need to measure or ensure an even covering, just toss the croutons a few times to ensure they’re seasoned here and there. Quickly cook following the instructions above and you’ll have the most amazing salad topper.

We recommend investing in a kitchen thermometer like the Habor Meat Thermometer to ensure your food is thoroughly cooked. It's quick, under twenty bucks and it's waterproof - and hey - we get a small referral fee for any purchases.
