Parmesan Croutons

I make these croutons for salads and to add to soups.  They never last long in the house, they are just so good to snack on.  This recipe is taken from Better Homes and Gardens New Cookbook.  

1. Cut four 1/2-inch-thick slices French bread into 3/4-inch cubes; set aside.  In a large skillet melt 1/4 cup butter or margarine.  Remove from heat.  Stir in 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese and 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder.  Add bread cubes, stirring until cubes are coated with butter mixture.  Spread bread cubes in a single layer in a shallow baking pan.  Bake in a 300F oven for 10 minutes; stir.  Bake about 10 minutes more or until bread cubes are crisp and golden.  Cool completely; store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.  Makes about 2 cups. 


Like Hy’s Caesar Dressing

I make this recipe probably twice a week.  I got the recipe from the Winnipeg Free Press Recipe Swap.  I use a mini-processor to combine all the ingredients.  It’s super easy. I used bottled lemon juice and it is just as good. 

2 garlic cloves
1 egg
4 shakes Worchestershire
4 shakes Tabasco
2 ml (1/2 tsp) anchovy paste
15 ml (1 tbsp) red wine vinegar
45 ml (3 tbsp) olive oil
15 ml (1 tbsp) freshly squeezed lemon juice
60 ml (1/4 cup) Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Crush garlic in bowl.  Add the rest of the ingredients, mix well.
