What to do with stale bread? Or bread that is about to go stale and getting hard? I recycle my homemade bread into croutons. If you have no homemade bread lying around, use the best quality bakery bread you can get.
- Almost stale bread
- Olive oil
- One garlic clove, peeled and cut in half
- Sea Salt, to taste
- Oregano, to taste
Cut your almost stale bread into cubes. Put it on a plate on the counter to dry out for a day or two. Take a ceramic baking dish or a cookie sheet. Rub each bread cube with the garlic. Coat the bread cubes with a layer of olive oil. Sprinkle with sea salt and oregano (or your favorite dried herb). Throw in the remainder of the garlic, and bake for about 20-30 minutes.
Even my kids like these. Maybe you could eat them while watching the Super Bowl?
