Does anyone other than me hate when you have like 2 hot dogs buns left and nothing to do with them? or you are down to the last of your bread and are a afraid it will go bad before it is used? Well here is a solution to your dilemma:
Make Homemade Croûtons
left over bread (loaf of bread, hot dog buns, hamburgers buns, etc)
Your Chocie of Seasoning:
I have down ranch (using a ranch dressing powder packet) croûtons and cinnamon and honey croûtons.... both are yummy and simple to make.
Here's what you do:
1) Break your bread up into pieces and place in a big bowl. The amount of bread can vary. I did a whole pack of hotdog buns that we weren't going to be using.
2) Melt one stick of butter in the microwave and then pour over bread. If you do use more bread than this you may want to add some more butter.
3) add seasoning. For the ranch croutons I used an instant ranch dressing packet and just mixed it into the bowl. For the cinnamon and honey croutons I add a generous amount of white sugar & cinnamon. I basically add a bit and stir and then taste it. If it taste good then I move onto step 4. If not I keep added the seasonings.
5) Bake @350 for 15 minutes.
The salad in the picture has mandarin oranges (canned), raisins, cinnamon and honey croûtons, and I top it with Honey Mustard Dressing. This is such a super yummy and simple salad!
