Home made Croutons
Buy a nice loaf of French or Italian bread & cut it into
cubes. Spray the cubes of bread with olive oil spray &
lots of garlic juice. I used Garlic Valley Farms. Toss the
cubes while spraying them. Sprinkle with salt. Bake at
350*until they are as crisp as you like, usually about 10
to 15 minutes. Stir & bake another 10 minutes. These
are the best croutons ever.

1 cup vegetable oil
In a bowl whisk together the flour,baking powder, & the salt. Stir

the dough & stretch them into 1/4 inch thick rounds. Poke a hole
with your finger through the center of each round so that the
bread will fry evenly. In a large heavy skillet heat the oil over
medium high heat until it is hot but not smoking. Fry the rounds
1 or 2 at a time for about 2 minutes on each side, or until they
