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.

Bon Appétit!

Ingredients
  1. Bread (Fresh Baguette or French Loaf works great)
  2. Olive Oil
  3. Herbs (We used only dried parsley, but add anything from your pantry)
  4. Salt & Pepper (Optional)
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. 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.
  3. Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy.  Serve on your favorite salad or soup.
Notes
  1. *Note: You can perform the same steps for a larger "toast" crouton to accompany soup by using a large slice of bread.
