Croutons

This cooking skill is all about making croutons.  Croutons are easy to make and are great served with salads and soups and can be eaten on their own as a snack.  Croutons are mostly served as cubes but they can differ in size.

Croutons – a step by step guide

  1. Take a few slices of white bread.  Cut off the crusts and cut the bread into small dice.
  2. Heat some vegetable oil in a frying pan, add the croutons and fry until golden brown.
  3. Remove with a slotted spoon onto kitchen paper to remove any excess oil.

When cutting the croûtons, you could try rubbing the blade of the knife with a peeled clove of garlic after every cut.  This will give the croûtons a subtle hint of garlic.
