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:
- 4 cups stale 1/2-inch bread chunks (about 8 slices bread) (see Options)
- 4 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted (see Options)
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (see Options)
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
- Preheat oven to 375 degree F. Place bread chunks in a medium bowl. Combine remaining ingredients in a small bowl.
- Lightly toss bread chunks with butter mixture and place on a large rimmed baking sheet; bake 15 to 20 minutes, or until crunchy throughout and golden.
- Let cool then store in an airtight container until ready to use.
- You can use any type of bread, from white to rye, with or without seeds, to make Crispy Croutons.
- If you'd prefer, you can use 4 tablespoons olive oil in place of the butter.
- 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.

This colonial-style brown bread is actually cooked inside of a can and it's a New England favorite! Our Boston Brown Bread is moist and flavorful on its own, but it's even better when you slather on some butter or cream cheese right before serving!
