Homemade Croutons made from Stale Bread

Homemade croutons are a great way to extend the life of bread that is beginning to go stale.

Cut the bread into bite-size squares, toss with olive oil and spices (garlic powder, onion powder, and basil are good options) and bake at 375℉ until crispy (about 10 minutes).

Use your homemade croutons to garnish salads, soups, cooked vegetables, or eat them on their own as a snack.

You could also blend them to make your own homemade whole wheat bread crumbs!
