Homemade Croutons

5 from 4 reviews

Homemade croutons make your salads and soups a taste tantalizing experience. Once you taste these you will never go back to those store bought croutons again




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a sharp knife remove the crusts from the loaf.  Then cut or tear your bread into bite size croutons. In a large bowl whisk together olive oil, dried parsley, dried oregano, dried basil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  3. Add the bread cubes to the bowl and stir gently to coat.
  4. Place on a baking sheet covered with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Bake for 12-20 minutes; or until lightly browned and crunchy. Cooking times will vary depending on the size of the cubes and position in the oven. Turn the croutons halfway through the baking process.  If using fresh bread it will take several more minutes to get crunchy.  Best way to tell if they are ready is to taste test.  They should be crunchy all the way through.
