Day Old Bread

What is day old bread? Well unless you made it yourself, I doubt it is anything but day old bread. Here is what I do with my old loaf that is about to go bad.

Bread Crumbs:
6 slices of bread, toast it if not already dried out and crusty.
1 tbsp parsley flakes
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp Italian Herb Blend
2 tbsp bread crumbs

combine in food processor. In 350 degree oven, toast crumbs for 10 minutes. (spread on cookie sheet in uniform layer) Use the Middle rack.

6 slices of bread
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tbsp dried parsley
1 tbsp dried basil
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper
2 tbsp oil (any kind you have is fine)

Cut bread into bite sized cubes, you should be able to get 20 cubes out of a slice of bread. In a large bowl, toss with oil and remaining ingredients.
In 400 degree oven, bake for 15 - 20 minutes, or until your bread has browned.

*This is cheaper than buying any crouton and will impress any salad lover!

Last one. I just found this recipe for quiche on the food network website. They use bread cubes instead of crust! I thought this was really cool, you should check it out. Crustless Quiche Master Recipe
