Bread crumbs? One night for dinner we were having a caesar salad, but there were no croutons to be had. I had made homemade macaroni and cheese the week before and had made bread crumbs to put on top of the macaroni. At the end of the meal I had extra, so I put them in a baggie and tossed them in the freezer. A week later there may have been no croutons, but I had bread crumbs and they were a hit. You get a little bit of crunch with each bite of your salad. I just put them in a bowl and let everyone sprinkle them on their own salad so that they don't get soggy.
1 cup fresh bread crumbs
1 1/2 tablespoon melted butter
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix bread crumbs, butter, and salt together in a small bowl. Spread breads crumbs evenly on a cookie sheet and bake until golden brown and crisp, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool.
