Do you have a loaf of bread that's going dry? Make homemade croutons. They're easy to make and taste great! This recipe is from an awesome book called "The Tightwad Gazette" by Amy Dacyczyn (it's chocked full of great money saving tips, so check it out).
4 slices of homemade bread (you can also use french bread or regular white bread from the store, but I think homemade is the best)
2 Tbs. Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. celery salt
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
2 Tbs. salad oil (I used olive oil, but you can also use veg. oil)
Slice bread into 3/8" cubes and place in bowl.
Add seasonings and oil. Toss to mix or stir gently with a spoon. Place on cookie sheet. Bake at 300 degrees until crisp.
Let cool on the cookie sheet then store in a glass jar or a container with a secure lid. (I always sneak a few warm croutons, they taste DELICIOUS). My mom also says they taste great in soup, such as tomato. YUM.
