After the bread has been finished and is cooled I slice in to 12 slices and then I either cube it or cut each slice in to 5 strips. Then I dry them in a 250 degree oven until they are completely dried. I then toss with melted butter, more parmesan cheese, onion powder, garlic powder and crushed dried parsley. I then bag it up or place it in a tight lidded jar. You should use it within a week. These are great when cubed on salads or when done in the strips as an accompaniment to soup. If you do the cubes use them like cracker in your soup. SALAD DRESSING MIXES: If you want to use some other flavor of salad dressing mix like ranch you can do that. Use what ever dry packet mix you like. Also, if you wanted you could replace half the water in the recipe with a good bottled salad dressing and then leave the dry mix out. If you do this you may need to adjust the dough ball by adding a little more water. This is especially true with thicker cream type dressings like ranch. HERBS: If you don't like dill, lemon or onions use whatever you like in the same amounts. I happen to really like these three in salads and they work well when you do these for soups as well. AS REGULAR BREAD: This bread also makes great grilled cheese sandwiches, tuna sandwiches, egg salad sandwiches, chicken salad sandwiches, etc. So even if you don't want to make croutons, it is still a good tasting bread.
