You might remember from my post the other day (easy apple turnover recipe ) that I went the non-traditional route for our Thanksgiving dinner this year. Part of that included a hearty romaine salad with homemade croutons. If you haven’t considered making your own croutons yet, I suggest starting. Not only is it super easy but it’s also a lot more cost efficient than purchasing them from the grocery store (plus you have the added advantage of knowing exactly what’s in your salad topping). For this, you’ll want to pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.
You will need:
- Bread (Any type will do. I was in a pinch with this recipe so I used three slices of white bread.)
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Seasoning (I used garlic and herb seasoning for this recipe.)
Cut the bread to your prefered size. Since I was using sliced bread, I first cut it into strips and then I cut each strip into cubes.
Combine Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Garlic & Hearb seasoning in a bowl.
Toss in the bread until everything is coated in the olive oil / seasoning.
Place in the oven at 400 degrees until the croutons are golden brown.
Enjoy over salad (assuming they make it onto the salad :)).
