I used to doughy center to make more eggbake, which is delicious and I would never complain about, and the crunchy crust I used to make croutons!
It's pretty simple, slice up the bread into crouton sized pieces and lay them out on a cookie sheet.
Then spray them with oil, sprinkle generously with garlic powder, and bake for 25-30 minutes (less time if your bread is stale and not a fresh mistake) at 350F.
And that's all there is to it; simple, easy, and your perfect homemade solution to a favorite salad companion. I ate them in some chili yesterday. Crunchy and garlicky and croutony perfection.
And just in case you were worried, Trader Joe's products come from non-GMO sources. Look at #3 on their customer updates page for more details. This definitely made me feel more comfortable about shopping there, and this canola oil spray was $2.99 as opposed to the Community Food Coop's canola oil spray for $4.99; both non-GMO.
Although in this story from NPR says that non-GMO corn essentially doesn't exist in the US anymore because contamination is so prevalent. Listen to it here. Tell me what you think - I was in despair, though comforted that you can find uncontaminated corn in Europe!
