Crouton Recipe

A couple of weeks ago we threw a back to school party where we served kids' food in lunch boxes. Each kid had two sandwiches from which the crust was removed using the wonderful Krustbuster.  So in the end I was left with crust of 40 slices.  It would have been a collossal waste to throw that crust away.  So what I did was make croutons! Delicious croutons!




Ingredients:
1/2 cup olive oil
2 cloves of garlic
pepper
crust of 40 bread slices

Chop the crusts into small pieces and place into a large bowl.  Put oil and garlic in a cup and microwave for 20seconds.  Pour oil mixture over crusts and mix well. Place on a baking tray with non stick paper and pepper all around. Place into a hot oven at 175C for 5 or 10 minutes depending on the oven.  You must keep an eye on them so that they don't burn. Take them out when golden in color.  This bunch could have stayed in there for another minute or so.

These are so delicious! You can put them in your salad or eat as they are! Store in an airtight container.
