A Single Suggestion: Homemade Croutons & Breadcrumbs

I love fresh bread – but living by myself, I often cannot get through the whole loaf before it starts to get crusty and/or moldy.  So I’ve outsmarted the bread.  When I’m ready to be done with the loaf or I know it’s about to go bad, I tear it up into smaller pieces.  I put them in my “crouton bag” (just a plain ol’ freezer bag) and slide them into the freezer.  Next time I have a recipe that called for croutons or bread crumbs, I’m set.  Here’s how:

If the recipe calls for croutons:

Spread the frozen bread pieces onto baking sheet.  I use my toaster oven, but a conventional oven will work just fine.  Drizzle with olive oil, pinch of garlic salt, pinch of pepper.  Bake for about 5-7 minutes at 375 or until bread becomes crunchy like a crouton.

If the recipe calls for breadcrumbs:

Follow the same steps for the crouton recipe.  Then toss them into the food processor and process until the consistency of breadcrumbs.

Pretty cool, eh?
