Crouton Craze

Want to freshen up a salad… make it more kid friendly.  Look no further than your cookie cutters, and make some adorable croutons.  Erica loved participating in this adventure, and loved eating them as well.

We started with our homemade bread:

Be sure to cut up and toast (or eat) the leftover bread 🙂

Then we brushed each crouton with olive oil, and seasoned with Italian Seasoning:

Then we broiled on high for just a couple of minutes. Maybe 4 at the most.

From yesterday:  I just noticed Macey’s (Associate Foods) has their canned black beans and Kidney beans on sale this week.   $0.48 per can!! That is a great stock up price. So, go stock up! What are you waiting for!

I have something to post tomorrow, but be sure to come back next week when I unveil My HUGEST GIVEAWAY EVER!  Seriously, this is the biggest one I’ve done to date.

WOW!This is such a great idea. I bet Chrissie will just love these. Thank you for the idea.

Glad you like it! The smaller cookie cutter the better. I didn’t have any the size I thought would be best, but these still worked.

I LOVE this idea! I’ve seen people make croutons, but never with cookie cutters. JB loves croutons and always tries to steal them out of my salads, so I bet he would really enjoy this!
