it's common knowledge that when it comes to eating caesar salad, the best part is the parmesan cheese (in excess) and the crunchy, garlicky croutons (also in excess)
for dinner tonight i decided to make use of some bargain bakery stale sourdough bread and make my own croutons to accompany our weekly dose of greens.
fact: making homemade croutons will..
impress your children.
you should do it.
Homemade Sourdough Croutons
1/2 loaf sourdough bread, cubed into bite size pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 tablespoon parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon dried parsley
sea salt & pepper to taste
preheat oven 350F
in a small bowl whisk together olive oil, butter, parmesan cheese, garlic powder, parsley and salt & pepper.
in large bowl add cubed bread. drizzle olive oil mixture overtop, tossing to coat.
spread the croutons on a large rimmed baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and crunchy.
serve with your favourite salad.
