Croutons Made in the Wok

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by PetsRus

This was a readers tip in Fine Cooking. No recipe with it, but when I read the tip it made sense to me. The lady said you can make more croutons in the wok then on one oven tray....The amount of oil may seem a lot but this is for many croutons and you will need it to crisp them proper. If you want to add Parmesan to the croutons, do that after you turned off the heat, sprinkle on and toss quickly.

I used whole-wheat baguette and canola oil. I used garlic powder and dried oregano. It's so yummy and easy to do. I won't buy anymore croutons. My son loved them. Thanks Pets :) Made for your Cookathon
