Hamburger Recipe

Ingredients

▢ 12 oz crusty bread loaf ▢ 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil ▢ 1 tsp Italian seasoning ▢ 1 tsp garlic powder, or 2 garlic cloves, minced ▢ 1/4 tsp fine sea salt ▢ 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Instructions Step - 1

In a small dish, add oil and seasonings. Stir to combine then set aside and let the flavors infuse into the oil while you chop your bread.

Step - 2

You can either tear your bread into rustic-shaped croutons or cut your bread with a serrated knife into 3/4" cubes. Keep the crusts on as they add variety and great crunch to these croutons. 

Step - 3

Drizzle the seasoned olive oil over your chopped bread and toss until bread crumbs have an even coating of oil.

Step - 4

Spread the bread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet and bake at 375˚F for 15-20 minutes, or until crisp, stirring halfway for even browning.

Step - 5

Bake time will vary depending on the size of your croutons and the type of bread used, so bake until crunchy and fully dried out.

Step - 6

To store, cool to room temperature then transfer to a large zip-top bag or an airtight container. Store at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. ENJOY
