Crutons


Allow the bread to become stale by letting it sit overnight on the counter. In the morning, cut the bread into 1 inch slices. Then place these slices on a rack and let sit on the counter for an hour to stale a bit more.

In the meantime, prepare the butter by placing in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the salt, pepper, garlic and onion powder. Keep stirring until all the butter is melted. Cover and remove from heat, but keep in a warm area.

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Fahrenheit.

Dice the bread slices into cubes. Place cubes on baking sheets making sure the cubes are not on top of each other, spread them out a bit. Place the cubes in the oven for 3 minutes and remove and let cool.

In a shaker bag (or a plastic bag you usually get when they package your goods at the grocery store), place all the bread cubes and sprinkle in the butter mixture and shake the bag until all the cubes are coated. Then place the cubes back on the baking sheets spreading them out so nothing overlaps. Bake for another 10 minutes and remove to let them cool for at least 30 minutes.

Store in an airtight container or a zip-sealed bag until ready to use. For storage, these should keep up to 3 days.
