  • Heat oven to 400°F.

  • Spread inside of bread shell with dressing. Fill with layers of remaining ingredients; cover with top of bread. Wrap in foil.

How to Make Homemade Croutons

Heat oven to 350°F. Cut bread removed from inside of loaf into small cubes; toss with 1/4 cup KRAFT Zesty Italian Dressing. Spread onto bottom of 15x10x1-inch pan. Bake 5 min., stirring after 3 min. Remove from oven. Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp. KRAFT Grated Parmesan Cheese. Bake 5 to 6 min. or until evenly browned, stirring occasionally. Add to soups or salads. Store leftover croutons in tightly covered container at room temperature.

Creative Leftovers

To make bread crumbs from the removed bread, process bread in food processor or blender until fine crumbs form.

    I made this with our left over Thanksgiving Turkey. It brought new life to the poultry since those who were "Turkey-ed out" were now singing the praises of this dish. This is definitely something new and different.

    This was great. I added stuffing and broccoli to it, and ate jellied cranberry sauce on the side instead of putting dried ones in. That was SO delicious!!!
