Once upon a time there was a loaf of bread going bad on my counter. I cut it up and made croutons. The end.
Wow that was a great story. No, really, because these croutons are delicious. In fact I have eaten half of them straight from the container. No salad, no dressing, just croutons. And the nice thing is that you can add flavors, spices and cheese combinations that you like too. This is so easy to do, so don’t let your stale bread go to waste!

Remove the crust and cut the bread into small cubes.
