When I saw that so many of you all throw away your bread ends….also known as bread butts, I was shocked! When we were growing up my momma always used them for french toast or croutons. So, I am here today to help you save your buns and some money!
Here is what I like to do….I hope you’ll follow along.
Save your bread ends! As you go through each loaf store the ends in the freezer. Yes! Keep them in a zip lock bag and stock up. When you have about 5 bread ends you can do the following;
`Make homemade croutons to top your families salads!
`Jump up and down because now you NEVER have to spend 3$ plus on store bought croutons again!
What you need
`5 bread ends
`1/4 cup olive oil
`1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar
`1 tbs garlic powder
`1 tsp salt
`1 tsp pepper
`1/2 cup ground Parmesan
`Pre-heat oven to 350
`Cut bread ends into cubes
`In a small bowl mix oil, vinegar and spices
`Spread cubes onto a foil lined sheet pan
`Pour oil mixture over bread cubes and mix with hands
`Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the bread cubes
Bake in oven for about ten to fifteen minutes
`Let cool and store in an air tight container…..for a fun gift wrap in cellophane bags with a tag!
