improvised croutons

what do you do when you have a crazy craving for some croutons but can’t find any in the store without wheat?

you MAKE them!

check out this super simple recipe created by your’s truly – my mama dukes! she made me a batch for this past weekend’s festivities, which i am still nibbling away on – not much left though :0)

AF (allergy free) CROUTONS

1 loaf of any type of AF bread
1/2 c. extra virgin olive oil
1 T. each of of these (mix n’ match to your taste-buds)
– pepper
– salt
– onion powder
– chopped basil
– chopped parsley
– oregano
– thyme

Cube the loaf of bread and place into a mixer with the mixer blade attachment.
Turn the mixer on low and quickly pour in the EVOO and sprinkle the herbs onto the cubes, just until everything is coated.
Spread the mixture onto a baking sheet and place in a 400* oven for 45 minutes, or until crisp, turning everything over with a spatula a few times while baking.
Let cool, pick out the cubes and store in an airtight container (or grab a handful to munch on!).
Another bonus – the crumbs that are leftover from it all become homemade bread crumbs!
