Easy Peasy Homemade Croutons

Last week a friend of mine shared with me some croutons and they were amazing.  As I asked her about them she simple stated how she had made them herself.  Her daughter and I ended up finishing them up just as a snack, they were that good.  So she inspired me to make some of my own.  They were so easy, cheap to make and the greatest fact they are so delicious!!  I will not buy croutons from the store.  You can adjust them flavor to whatever you want.
Easy Peasy Homemade Croutons 
This is a basic recipe. Use the seasonings and oils that you love.

1 loaf day or older bread (I found a bag of sliced bagette in the day old section at the store bakery department).
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1/4 cup Butter
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
seasoning salt
salt
pepper
garlic

Mix up your oils and seasonings.  Let sit for a few minutes so the flavors can mix a bit.
Dice up your bread.
As you can see it was quite a large bowl of diced bread.
Pour the oil seasoning mixture over the bread and stir to coat.  Add more oil or seasoning if needed.
Pour on to a cookie sheet. 
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the bread is crisp and golden brown.  Stir a few times during baking cycle.
Remove from cookie sheet.  When croutons have cooled store in an air tight container.
So EASY and Delicious!

  1. I agree with you. No more store bought croutons. My recipe is a bit more basic, but this looks wonderful. I served them to a guest not too long ago, and they were surprised that you could home make croutons! Joni
