Don't throw away that heel of bread , or for that matter, leftover hamburger and hot dog buns! Turn them into croutons. Cut the bread or buns in 3/4 to 1 inch cubes, spread them on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, then salt, pepper, garlic powder and even a little finely grated parmesan. Toss on the baking sheet and spread them out evenly. Bake in a pre-heated 350F oven for about 20 minutes, tossing them around about halfway during the baking process. Let cool and store in a zippered freezer bag. Not only great for salads but also in a bowl of soup.
