Homemade Garlic Croutons ~ Serves 4
Ready in under 30 minutes

Get your crazy crunch on with these garlic croutons. Your salad will never be the same.
Save leftover bread, coat it with garlic and turn it into a delicious accessory.

10 slices bread, at least a day old
4 tablespoons olive oil
4 tablespoons butter or margarine
5 cloves garlic, peeled and smashed
garlic salt

Cut the bread into 1-inch cubes.
Heat half each of the olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.
Add half of the garlic cloves and cook, stirring constantly, until the garlic just begins to brown.
Remove the garlic with a slotted spoon and discard it.
Add half of the bread cubes to the skillet and quickly stir to coat them in the oil mixture.
Cook, stirring frequently, until they just begin to brown.
Remove the croutons with a slotted spoon and let drain on paper toweling.
Repeat the process with the remaining ingredients.
Sprinkle the croutons lightly with garlic salt while still warm.
Let cool completely then store in an airtight container for 3-4 days at room temperature.

They can also be frozen.
