Simple Herbed Croutons
They may seem complicated, but homemade croutons are one of the easiest additions to a meal you kind find, and your guests will still be impressed by your flare. Once you see how simple they really are, I guarantee that you will never purchase store-bought croutons again. Store-bought croutons have lists and lists of unnecessary ingredients, in addition to unnecessary packaging.
We started off with a freshly baked baguette from Homeboy Bakery, which we picked up at the Brentwood Farmer’s Market.
- Bread (Fresh Baguette or French Loaf works great)
- Olive Oil
- Herbs (We used only dried parsley, but add anything from your pantry)
- Salt & Pepper (Optional)
- Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
- Cut the bread into small squares. Dose heavily in olive oil, ensuring each bread cube is covered. Spread out bread pieces on a cookie sheet and sprinkle any herbs, salt and pepper.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Serve on your favorite salad or soup.
- *Note: You can perform the same steps for a larger "toast" crouton to accompany soup by using a large slice of bread.
