Garlic Parmesan Croutons

Submitted By: Mary Kolling
Prep. Time: 0:45
Serves: 16

6 cloves garlic - pressed
3 Tbls. butter OR margarine
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
8 cups cubed day-old bread - see Notes, below
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 Tbls. chopped fresh thyme OR 1 1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. coarse ground black pepper

-In a small skillet, sauté garlic in butter until golden; remove from heat; stir in oil.
-Place the bread in a large bowl, pour garlic mixture evenly over all, cover, and toss to coat.
-Sprinkle Parmesan, thyme, salt, and pepper over bread, cover, and toss to coat.
-Spread croutons evenly on a baking sheet and bake in a 250 degree oven for 30-45 minutes, until crisp and golden.

Notes: I buy bags of day-old dinner rolls, the type with both white and wheat rolls mixed in the bag, for a more colorful turnout.

Great value on Printer Ink, Toner, and more.
