Homemade Croutons

Since I know October seems to be the month of candy, I try to fight against it with additional vegetables. Salads are always an easy solution. Usually, I do not make my own croutons but I had purchased a baguette and we didn't eat it. It was pretty hard so I had to think of some ideas for the baguette. Some thoughts were using it to hit a pinata. Let the kids use it as a sword. Put it in the freezer which it would have been forgotten until years months later. I figured it would make great croutons which it did. I cut the bread into triangles so they looked like teeth.
Shark's Teeth aka Homemade Croutons
1 baguette, cut up into bite size pieces
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 tsp sea salt

  1. Preheat broiler to high.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  3. In a bowl, toss the bread with the olive oil, oregano,cheese, and salt.
  4. Spread the bread in one layer onto the baking sheet.
  5. Toast the bread for about 5 minutes or until the bread is golden brown.
  6. Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving.
