grated Parmesan cheese
5 thick slices
day-old bread with crusts removed, cut into cubes
I made a scaled down version of these, and they came out very good. Since oregano can have a strong taste, I'd caution you to perhaps start with going a little short on that herb--you can always add, but it's harder to take away! Cooking time could vary depending on how dry your bread is to start with. I took mine out of the oven when they were nicely golden brown, but they weren't quite crunchy yet. I baked them a little more, and they almost got too done. I liked the process of how to toss the bread cubes in the butter solution. Thanks for adding so much flavor to our salad!
If you run the baked croutons through the food processor to a fine consistancy, these will also make great "italian" bread crumbs--way better than the processed brands. THIS CAN BE FROZEN. You can also use leftover hamburger or hot dog buns and get the same result.
