Herbed Crouton Sticks
Dunk these king-size homemade croutons in soups or toss into salads.

  • 1 8-ounce thin baguette
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh basil or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Cut baguette in half horizontally. Cut bread into strips 3-1/2-inches long by 1-inch wide (or a length that will fit into gift container); set aside. In a 12-inch skillet melt butter or margarine. Stir in basil and garlic powder. Add half the crouton sticks, stirring until coated with butter mixture. Arrange crouton sticks in a single layer in a shallow baking pan. Repeat with remaining crouton sticks.
  • Bake, uncovered, in a 300 degree F oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until crouton sticks are dry and crisp, turning once. Cool completely. Store, tightly covered, at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Makes about 24 sticks.
  • 3. To Present This As a Gift: You will need an antique refrigerator dish from the '40s or '50s, or another brightly colored vintage container; and clean vintage tea towel or fabric napkin.First arrange the crouton sticks in the container. Put the lid on to keep the sticks airtight. Wrap the container with a napkin or tea towel. Or try this: If you do not have a lid for the container, place the sticks upright, cover with colored cellophane, and wrap with a kitchen towel.
