Homemade Croutons

It’s been a salad week for us, here at home.  We’ve had steak salad, arugula and potato salad, chicken salad, and more.  And what’s the first thing that people think of when they hear salad?

CROUTONS!

I, personally, am a big fan of the crunchy little accomodations to salad.  I could sit and eat a whole bag of them.  But I often find them to be a little overpriced and usually don’t buy them.  For some reason, it never occurred to me until this past week to make my own.

We had some old french rolls that were on their way to being hockey pucks, so instead of throwing them out, I decided to cube them up and throw them into a hot pan with a some olive oil, salt, pepper, and a dash of garlic salt.

The result??

They are absolutely delicious.  10 times better than store-bought ones.  They’re full of flavor and melt in your mouth.  Who would’ve guessed stale bread could produce something absolutely delectable??
