I'm Domestic

Ok, I'm officially domestic. I made my very own croutons yesterday. You heard me right, I made my own. I was out and I was making a salad and didn't want to go to the store. They turned out SOOOO good. Can you tell I'm proud of myself. Very simple, and very good. Way better than store bought. Here's the recipe.

Dill Croutons
1/4 cup butter
1/2 tsp dill
1/8 tsp. garlic powder or onion powder
8 slices french bread cut in 1/2 "slices then cut in 3/4" cubes.

Melt butter, add seasonings. Mix. Add cut up bread. Mix until bread is coated. Put on cookie sheet, spread them apart. Place in 300 degree oven for 10 minutes, stir then cook for an additional 5 minutes. Cool.

I had a dill seasoning mix from pampered chef that I used. It had dill, onion, and garlic in it, so I used 1/2 tsp + 1/8 tsp of the mix instead of the dill and powder. It turned out great.

You can also use parmessean cheese instead of dill for cheese croutons.
