Before we go any further I should warn you:
This recipe will take 2 and a 1/2 hours to make. So make sure you have a couple hours free before you begin.
I do have a movie recommendation, if you happen to have 2 and a 1/2 hours free.
I’m a quite big fan of La La Land, the first real musical in a generation. (The beautifully choreographed opening dance sequence is below.) At 2 hours and 8 minutes, it will keep you entertained as the croutons are drying out in the oven.
And at the end of 2 and a 1/2 hours you’ll have some crispy low carb cheddar croutons.
Perfect for topping salads and soups. Or just noshing on. The best part is that one serving of croutons has only 1g net carb. Nearly nothing. You can save the carbs for the salad. So put these croutons in the oven, kick your feet up and take a break in La La Land.
It’s the perfect escape.
