easy homemade croutons
Keep it Simple, Sweetie:
  • 1 loaf of stale bread
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Cut the loaf into ½ to 1 inch squares and let them sit out for a few hours (or overnight) so they dry out a bit.
  2. Pop em in a pan over low to medium heat and coat with the olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  3. Stir/flip the croutons with a spatula every few minutes so they cook evenly on all sides.
  4. After about 15 minutes your croutons should be golden brown and ready to top your favorite soup or salad.
  5. From here you can use your croutons immediately, or store them for about a week in an air tight container
