There's not much to say about this one. A simple easy recipe to make croutons. Once in a while I like some added crunch in my salads aside crunch of the lettuce. I like croutons once in a while. I guess it depends on the mood I'm in. But I love it on caesar salad. They are relatively easy to make. Almost like a biscotti. Yet these are baked once. I used a couple sliced of sourdough, but you can use whichever bread you prefer. They don't really have to be one type. the neat thing is that they absorb some of the vinaigrette I lovingly drizzle over the greens. As you can tell by the photos, I piled them on there pretty good.
3 slices day old sourdough bread
3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil (plus extra if needed)
Preheat your oven to 375˚F
Using a serrated knife cut the bread in to 1/2-inch thick squares. Place them in a bowl. Drizzle in the olive oil and give them a toss. Make sure to coat them well. Then place on an ungreased baking sheet. Baked for 30 minutes. Give then a toss half way through to even out the browning and until crisp.
Serve with you favorite salad.
