This real easy recipe shows you how to make tender, satisfying croutons out of store bought sliced gluten free bread in minutes. Get great use out of all your sliced gluten free bread, butts of bread included, by turning it into croutons.

Start to Finish: 10 minutes
Serves 2

2 slices of ‘Udi’s Whole Grain’ gluten free bread, thawed if frozen
2 tbsp olive oil

Stove Directions
1.  In medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.
2. Add bread to skillet; cook on each side until the bread begins to brown evenly, about 4 minutes on each side.
3. Transfer the bread to cutting board. Cut the bread into 1-inch cubes, about 9 cubes per slice of bread.

Toaster Oven Directions
1. Lightly brush bread with olive oil.
2. Bake in toaster over a little longer than you would for toast; about 4 minutes at 450°. Keep a close eye to ensure the bread doesn’t come out burnt.

Croutons – Store croutons in a Ziploc bag to use for salads and soups during the week.

Bread - Any sliced bread can be used for this recipe. Store gluten free bread in the freezer if you don’t plan to use it any time soon, and use a toaster oven to quickly thaw the bread.

I enjoy making a few slices over the weekend, so I have easy access to great tasting croutons for my soups and salads during the week. Enjoy!
