Say goodbye to store-bought croutons and hello to lots of homemade crunch and flavor. The best part is you make these Crispy Croutons with stale bread, so it costs practically nothing to become a salad or soup hero!

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 loaf French bread (see options)
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Place bread chunks in a medium bowl. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl. 
  2. Lightly toss bread chunks with butter mixture and place on a large rimmed baking sheet; bake 15 to 20 minutes or until crispy and golden.
  3. Let cool then store in an airtight container until ready to use.

Options

  • You can use any type of bread, from white to rye, with or without seeds, to make Crispy Croutons. Also, if you'd prefer, you can use 4 tablespoons olive oil in place of the butter. Plus, to make this a cheesy croutons recipe, just add 1 tablespoon of grated Parmesan cheese, along with the other seasonings, and reduce the salt to 1/4 teaspoon, or leave out the salt entirely.

Have made these several times. So easy and you can any ingredient you want. Going to bake them at 250 and see how they turn out. YUMMY!

bake at 250 degrees instead! it makes them less tooth breaking hard. croutons should ALWAYS be baked low and slow. don't make the mistake store bought croutons do.

how did chas696969 cut that bread so perfect? 0318michelle
