Low carb croutons & breadcrumbs with oregano & thyme

Use your keto bread to make croutons for your soups and salads, or grind them into breadcrumbs for your vegetarian "meatballs". They are easy to make and you can customize them in many ways, just before baking: add dried spices [like garlic, onion, chili powders], add dried herbs [like oregano, thyme, rosemary], toss them in sauces [like keto ketchup or barbecue] or make plain croutons with salt and pepper. One recipe, many options to carry it out!
