We always have leftover baguettes after meals. Instead of throwing them away, I slice them thinly and make these easy croutons for soup and salads. Store them in a plastic bag in the frig and use them whenever you serve soup or salad!
Approximately one baguette
Slice baguette into thin slices, between 1/8 and 1/4 inch
Chop 4 to 5 cloves garlic depending on how strong you like it. Easiest trick is buy garlic puree in a jar or tube. Add to taste, 1 to 2 tablespoons
Mix with 3/4 Cup olive oil
Add 1 Tbsp sea salt
Stir and use baster to paint over slices.
Put in oven at 380 degrees until toasted
