Kraft Kitchens Tips

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.
Prepare as directed, using 1 pkg. (9 oz.) OSCAR MAYER Deli Fresh Oven Roasted Turkey Breast, MIRACLE WHIP Light Dressing and/or KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese.
