Garlic-Herb Croutons

I wanted to make a Caesar Salad for a luncheon with some friends and I didn’t have any croutons, but I did have a bag full of sliced bread. So I improvised.

Here are the ingredients needed for this recipe:

  • 4 Tbsps butter
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 8 slices of bread, cubed
  • 1 tsp dried herbs (optional: oregano, basil, sage, or a combination of the 3)

Step 1: Preheat the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit

Step 2: In a large pan, melt the butter over medium heat

Step 3: Stir in the garlic

Step 4: Cook and stir the garlic for about 1 minute (do not burn it)

Step 5: Add in the cubed bread slices, toss and coat in butter

Step 6: Spread the bread onto a baking sheet evenly

Step 7: Sprinkle on the dried herbs and season with salt and black ground pepper

Step 8: Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until crisp and dry (Check frequently so as to prevent the bread from burning)

    These look yummy! I always find home-made croutons more satisfying than shop bought ones.
