Make croutons yourself

Croutons refine salads and soups or serve as a filling for dumplings. If you want to make croutons yourself, first cut white bread into thin slices, cut off the bark and roll the bread. Fry the bread cubes in a pan - depending on taste in butter, in oil or in an oil-butter mixture. The croutons are especially hearty if you rub the pan out with garlic beforehand or roast the croutons in exuberant bacon fat.

Croutons quickly turn dark, so turn them several times until they are brown all around, and then drain on kitchen paper.

If you want to save fat, you can also roast croutons in a non-stick pan - even without fat. However, the croutons do not taste so good then. Always sprinkle croutons on the dish just before serving, otherwise they will become soft!
