Cajun/Creole Croutons

Do Cajuns eat Caesar salad?  Who cares, these are a real treat :)These are a real treat.  Substitute these on your next Caesar salad and delight your guests.

3 C day-old bread cubes
2 T olive oil
1 T Creole seasoning

Heat oven to 375F.

Toss the cubes of stale bread with the olive oil and Creole seasoning. Spread in a single layer on a baking sheet, and bake until golden brown, about 4-5 minutes.

Variations -- You can make plain croutons by omitting the Creole seasoning, or even the olive oil for a low-fat version. For Italian croutons: allow to cool, and toss with one tablespoon of Italian seasoning blend, some granulated or fresh crushed garlic, and a tablespoon or so of grated Parmesan or Romano cheese.

Croutons will keep in an airtight container for about a week.
