Andrew Zimmern Cooks: Parmesan Croutons
- 3 cups cubed day old bread
- 1/4 cup butter, melted
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl, toss the bread cubes with the melted butter. Place in a large ovenproof non-stick skillet and toast over medium-low heat. Toss or flip to toast on at least two sides of each cube. Once they are nice and toasted, place in a bowl.
Sprinkle an even layer of parmesan cheese in the bottom of the ovenproof non-stick skillet. Once it starts to melt, add the toasted bread cubes back to the pan in an even layer. Place in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
Flip the cheesy croutons onto a plate and allow to cool briefly. Break them up and use on soups and salads!
