Cinnamon Croutons

by elyn_ryn

Here’s a recipe for yummy cinnamon croutons.  They are made from old bread that you would probably otherwise throw away.  Did you know that you can prolong the life of bread by putting it in the refrigerator?  When bread gets old you can make croutons or cheese bread and sometimes even bread pudding.  It’s amazing how people love old bread then!

These croutons are cooked in a skillet for a chewy texture.  They are quick to make and should be eaten right after you cook and cool them.  For any leftovers, place them in a hot oven (as detailed in the recipe below) and they will become crunchy for your next salad or a snack.
