How to Make Croutons (Recipe)

by katerina on August 28, 2009

Homemade croutons taste so much better than store bought and are very easy to make. They keep pretty well in the fridge too, so make a batch and keep then in the fridge for a few days to add to salads and soups. Once you know how to make croutons, you will never buy them again!

(1 1/2 cups croutons)

1 1/2 cups french bread, chopped into 3/4" cubes
1/4 cup olive oil
salt and pepper

To make your croutons first preheat the oven to 375F. Toss together the bread, olive oil, salt and pepper and place on a rack on a cookie sheet. Put in the oven. Watch your croutons carefully or they will burn, they should only bake for 5-10 minutes or until nice and lightly browned. Remove from the oven and let cool.
