3Chef’s Note: I apologize for the lack of step-by-step photos. I was making this for about 25 ladies at a Sunday brunch. I did manage to shoot a final image, but that was about it.
These were served on a caesar salad with my homemade dressing... YUM.
4Place a rack in the middle position, and preheat the oven to 350f (175c).
5Toss the breadcrumbs with the Parmesan, and olive oil. Plus add a bit of salt and pepper, to taste.
6Chef's Note: I use all kinds of different breads for these croutons. One of my favs is sourdough.
7Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes.
8After 10 minutes, toss the cubes, and return to the oven for an additional 10 minutes.
9Chef's Note: I do not like my croutons to be dried up bits of bread. I like them crunchy but with a bit of give in the middle. For this reason, I don't use old dried out bread.
11Serve with your favorite salad. Enjoy.
12Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
