Cinnamon croûtons are a sweet variation on the classic salad croûton, which can be used to enhance a fruit salad. Alternately, these croûtons make a good addition to pumpkin, sweet potato or carrot soups.

Ingredients[edit]

Makes enough croûtons for 4 to 6 servings of fruit salad.

Procedure[edit]

  1. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°F (~180°C).
  3. Pour the walnut oil into a pan and fry the bread cubes in it, tossing to coat with oil.
  4. Spread the bread cubes on a baking sheet and garnish with cinnamon sugar. Bake for 8 minutes or until crispy and dry. Allow to cool well before handling, as the sugar will make these croûtons easier to brown, and thus hotter to handle initially.
