Not wanting to waste it, I figured I'd make French Toast on Sunday. But then I got distracted and didn't do that - instead, I used the eggs to make scrambled eggs!
So tonight I made a delicious split pea soup, and decided to use up the challah by making croutons!

Making croutons is actually really easy, and everyone loved them!
How to make croutons:
Cut leftover bread or challah into small pieces. Place bread pieces in a bowl. Add salt*, pepper*, granulated garlic*, oregano*, dried parsley*, or other spices, and a large dollop of olive oil. Toss to coat. Spread the spiced bread on a baking tray and bake at 200C till browned. I used my toaster oven, because it uses less energy than the big oven, so it's ideal when I only have one tray to put in.
*I didn't measure my seasonings. I just poured. sorry. season to taste!
Easy peasy! And so good!
