1-2 Tbsp. bacon grease
1-2 Tbsp. butter
4 slices white bread, crusts removed, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
Preheat the oven to 250 F.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a skillet over medium heat, melt the butter and bacon grease.
Add the bread cubes, tossing to coat in the butter. Cook 5-8 minutes, or until crisp.
Transfer the croutons to the prepared baking sheet and keep warm in the oven until ready to serve. The croutons will continue to harden in the oven.
Serve on salad (or however it is you eat croutons). This was super easy and they were delicious. A good way to use up old bread.
