Garlic Parmesean Crouton How To

A couple months ago I wrote about how I randomly throw away all the ends of my bread.
No one in my house likes to eat them, so I end up tossing them.
Well it’s sparked quite the conversation and thats when my amazing friend Jacqui stepped in.
If you have not met Jacqui or subscribe to her blog you need to.
She makes the most amazingly delicious organic desserts.
She even did the dessert table at Little Man’s birthday party.
So when Jacqui mentioned to me to me that she had a bomb diggity recipe for Garlic Parmesan Croutons, I begged her to let me be the first to share it.
And she said Yes!
I seriously can’t wait to try this recipe myself. I’ve been freezing my bread butts in anticipation.

When I saw that so many of you all throw away your bread ends….also known as bread butts, I was shocked! When we were growing up my momma always used them for french toast or croutons. So, I am here today to help you save your buns and some money!
Here is what I like to do….I hope you’ll follow along.
Save your bread ends! As you go through each loaf store the ends in the freezer. Yes! Keep them in a zip lock bag and stock up. When you have about 5 bread ends you can do the following;

`Make homemade croutons to top your families salads!
`Jump up and down because now you NEVER have to spend 3$ plus on store bought croutons again!
