Real Food Fast: Stovetop Croutons

Homemade CroutonsThe day old bread problem is common in our house. I am addicted to the delicious country bread from the food shop down the street, but we can’t seem to polish off an entire loaf – try as we might! – before some of it goes stale. Since I hate to waste food I usually end up making a quick batch of croutons with whatever bread is too tough to make into a sandwich. To some it sounds silly to make croutons when they can be easily purchased at the store, but it is incredibly easy to make them at home. Not to mention much less expensive. Here is how you can make a quick batch of crunchy croutons on your stovetop in minutes:

Stovetop Croutons

1 – 2 c. day-old bread (preferably a baguette or country bread), cubed in 1/4″ squares

3 T. olive oil

Generous pinch of Kosher salt

1. Toss all of the ingredients in a large bowl until bread is evenly coated. Warm a skillet to medium, add the bread and turn it occasionally until completely toasted. About 5 minutes.
