Gigantic Mustard Parmasean Breadcrumbs


When I start planning a menu, the first thing I do is take inventory of what is in the kitchen.  If I spot a loaf of crusty country bread that is past its prime, I immediately put Panzanella on the plan for dinner, which is basically our Cucumber Dill Salad with croutons, feta and some extra veggies.

I added some non-traditional and optional items to my version of this Tuscan inspired salad including turning up the volume of these croutons.


  • 1 loaf of crusty country bread, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Making It

  • Put the bread in a mixing bowl
  • Place all the other ingredients in another mixing bowl and whisk together- pour over bread and mix thoroughly mix
  • Place on a rimmed baking sheet and roast at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes, use a spatula to toss 3-4 times while cooking
