Basic Croutons

4   1/2-inch thick slices stale country white
or whole-wheat bread (about 6 ounces)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Trim and discard crusts from bread.   Cut bread into 3/4-inch squares.  (You should have about 3 cups.)  Toss bread and oil together on rimmed cookie sheet.   Sprinkle with salt to taste.

Bake, turning croutons once, until nicely browned and crisp, about 15 minutes.  Drain croutons on paper towels and use as quickly as possible, certainly within a couple of hours.  Makes about 2 1/2 cups, enough croutons for 6 bowls of soup.  (Natural Health)

(General Mills)

Crusty French Onion Bread

1/4 pound softened butter or margarine
2 to 4 tablespoons dry onion soup mix
1/4 cup snipped parsley

1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon melted butter or margarine

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Beat eggs slightly in a medium-size bowl.  Beat in milk, flour, and salt until mixture is smooth; stir in butter.  Pour into 8 well-greased small deep custard cups, filling each half full.   For easy handling, place cups, several inches apart, in a large shallow pan.  Bake 50 minutes, or until puffed and golden.  Remove from cups to a wire rack.  Serve hot.  Makes 8 popovers.  (Parents)

Jalapeno Soy Cornbread

1 cup cornmeal
1 cup defatted soybean flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup egg substitute
2 jalapeno peppers, stemmed, seeded, and minced

Pour batter into an 8-inch square pan coated with nonstick cooking spray.  Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a wooden skewer, when inserted into center of bread, comes out clean.  Let bread cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before cutting into 12 squares.  (Walking)

Onion Fans

1 package refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1 egg
1 tablespoon water
1 package onion dip mix

Unroll crescent dough to make 4 rectangles, pinching dough together at perforations to seal.

Beat eggs and water slightly in a small bowl; brush lightly over each rectangle.  Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of the dip mix over each.   Starting at a long side, roll up tightly, jelly roll style.  Cut each rectangle in half crosswise. 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Place rolls, seam-side down, on a cookie sheet; make 3 cuts into each roll from outside edge almost to center; separate cuts slightly so rolls will bake in a fan shape.   Brush egg mixture lightly over rolls.

Bake 12 minutes, or until puffed and golden.   Remove from cookie sheet to a wire rack.  Serve warm.  Makes 8 rolls.   (Parents)

Parmesan Pinwheels

1 loaf (16 ozs) frozen white-bread dough

Mix Parmesan cheese, parsley, and basil in a cup; spread over dough to within 1/2 inch of edges.  Starting at a long side, roll up tightly, jelly roll style.

Cut into 1-inch slices; place flat-side down, in well-greased muffin pan cups; cover.  Let rise in a warm place, away from draft, 45 minutes, or until doubled.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Bake rolls 20 minutes, or until golden.  Remove from muffin cups to a wire rack.  Serve warm or cold.  Makes 15 rolls.  (Parents)

Quick Buttermilk Biscuits

1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 cups self-rising flour
3/4 cup buttermilk
Butter or margarine, melted

Cut 1/2 cup butter into flour with a pastry blender until mixture is crumbly.  Add buttermilk, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened.  Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead lightly 3 or 4 times.  Roll dough to 3/4-inch thickness.  Cut with a 2-inch biscuit cutter, and place on a lightly greased baking sheet.  Bake at 425 degrees for 13 to 15 minutes.

Spoonbread

1 cup yellow or white cornmeal
1 teaspoon salt

Add milk and butter and beat until smooth.  Let cool.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Lightly grease a 2-quart casserole.   Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form when beater is slowly raised.  With same beater, beat the egg yolks until they are thick and light.  Add with baking powder to cornmeal mixture, and mix well.

Gently fold in egg whites until combined.  Turn into prepared casserole. 

Bake, uncovered, 40 to 50 minutes, or until spoonbread is golden-brown and puffy.  Spoon right from the casserole, and serve hot, with butter.  Serves 8.
