Homemade Sourdough Croutons

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.
and husband.
and yourself.
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.
