Break down the bread with a sharp knife that will not squish it into small cubes, again, it's your choice, do you like big Croutons or small Croutons?
Place some parchment down on a baking sheet and place your Crouton bread over. Season with ingredients, give or take. Or just use the spices you enjoy. Cover with melted butter and gentle mix thoroughly. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees for about 7 mins, rearrange them, bake another 7 mins, then by this point you just want to keep a good eye on them, rearrange them again and your looking for a nice golden brown and crunchy Croutons, don't be afraid if you're unsure just turn the oven off and leave them in there, little Chef's trick.
***REMINDER:*** This is cooking people: HAVE FUN, experiment, explore, be creative, make a recipe your own (you don't have to follow a recipe to the T), spice it up all little and again, have fun!!!
Get rid of as much bagged, pre-frozen/cooked, processed, pumped junk labeled a product that's main ingredients consist of nothing but unhealthy, unknown, additives, preservatives, by-products and just junk. Use fresh, healthy ingredients, get down and dirty in the kitchen....
Get the family involved too!!! My children 8, 4 and 2 love doing the littlest simplest things in the kitchen; It is literally a family event for everyone here to help out in some way, shape or form for supper (even if its just cleaning or setting the table)... FOOD IS FUN! Who knows, the next Ramsay, Lagasee, Flay or Ray may be 3 foot nothing right in your own home, for those with children (there are 1000's of great Chef's in the world today, I just named a few off the top of my head, so if I offended you by omitting one, I'm sorry). It will also be an invaluable learning experience that will change their lives (thanks MOM!!!)...
Those without little ones, invite the family around you over and cook together, have a potluck, invite the friends.
Throw away all the garbage processed foods and have some fun in the kitchen with healthy, fresh, homemade cooking with real, fresh ingredients. Revolutionize your life, health and bring back family togetherness. Food, it's an amazing thing!!!
