Why Homemade Croutons?

People love homemade croutons because they're far tastier and more customizable than store-bought ones. You can choose your favorite bread, seasonings, and even add cheese or herbs for a gourmet touch. Plus, they're a great way to use up leftover bread!

Popularity and History

Croutons have been around for centuries, originally used as a way to repurpose stale bread. Over time, they evolved into a beloved culinary staple found in kitchens worldwide. Today, they're cherished for their ability to add texture and flavor in everything from Caesar salads to hearty stews.

Tips for Perfect Croutons:

  1. Bread Choice: Use day-old bread for best results. Baguettes or sourdough work exceptionally well.

  2. Seasoning: Toss bread cubes with olive oil, salt, pepper, and herbs like thyme or rosemary. Add garlic powder for extra flavor!

  3. Baking: Spread cubes evenly on a baking sheet and bake until golden brown and crispy. Remember to toss them halfway through for even browning.

Recipe Ingredients:

  • Bread of any type

  • Fresh parsley

  • Garlic powder

  • Onion powder

  • Melted butter

  • Olive oil

Recipe Directions:

  1. Cube up bread.

  2. Chop up parsley and combine in a bowl along with the garlic and onion powder.

  3. Melt butter and toss with bread.

  4. Place on a baking sheet, drizzle with a little bit of olive oil and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 mins.
