If you’re like me, the croutons are the BEST part of a salad!
This is an easy recipe for delicious homemade microwave croutons – I have been making these for years and it’s a great way to use up left over bread or even sandwich trimmin’s. It is also healthier for you as you are not buying the box ‘o preservatives from the store.
Yes, I know it uses a lot of Tupperware – if you are dying to have any of those pieces, you can check out my website www.BuyCoolTW.com, or you can use what you have on hand.
We also grab a few of these to top off that bowl of potato or tomato soup!
- 5 cups bread cubes
- ½ stick butter
- 1 tbs. crouton seasoning**
- 3 tbs. Parmesan cheese
3 tbs. garlic salt, 7 tsp. garlic powder, 7 tsp. onion powder, 2 tsp. basil, 2 tsp. oregano, 1 tsp. thyme, 1 tsp. marjoram, 1 tsp. white pepper. Put all spices into a Large Spice Shaker, seal & shake to combine. Makes enough for 10 batches of croutons
Place bread cubes in Large Deep Vent ‘N Serve and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Melt butter in 1 cup Micro Pitcher on medium for about 1 minute. Stir in seasoning and stir into bread crumb mix and microwave on high for 3-4 min, stirring once. They should be crisp and almost dry (bread cubes will crisp as they cool). Store in a Modular Mate container to keep fresh.
