Nothing quite says success as when when your guest recognizes the little things. Salad was finally served. “These are real croutons… And real bacon bits!” yes – yes they are! I thought I was the only one who would notice this type of thing but apparently not, so again, the little things are always worth it. Bump up that salad with an easy personal touch.
Perfect Parmesan Croutons
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cut bread into 1/2 inch cubes. I like to use a chewy yeasty type of bread like ciabatta.
Add in grated garlic, basil, cheese and pepper and mix again. Spread bread evenly on a baking tray.
Sprinkle a little bit of salt over the bread and place in a hot oven and bake until crisp and golden for 10 to 15 minutes.
These will go great in any salad or in your favorite bowl of hot soup.
