We commonly refer to these homemade croutons as “Crouton Crack” in our house. You’ll understand why soon enough.
I have my Aunt Candi to thank for these beauties. She taught me how to make them a few years ago, after I raved about her own homemade croutons. She’s awesome in the kitchen, and she owned her own catering company, so… yeah, these are to-die-for. And you’ll certainly never have to send your hubby out for store-bought croutons EVER AGAIN.
Especially after you see how ridiculously easy they are!
- French Bread Loaf
- Olive Oil
- Garlic Salt
- Italian Seasoning
- Dice the bread up into small cubes. Put them in a mixing bowl.
- Pour enough olive oil into the bowl to lightly cover the cubes.
- Season with garlic salt and Italian seasoning, to taste. Personally, I go a little heavy on the salt. Jon says he doesn’t like salt, but he never complains about these babies, and somehow half of the pan is always missing after I get these out of the oven, so… You do the math.
- Mix everything up with your hands until the cubes are well covered.
- Spread out in a single layer on a cookie sheet covered in aluminum foil.
- Bake at 350 for 10 minutes. Toss/flip cubes once at the five minute mark.
- Use to top salad OR just eat them for fun. Like I said, CROUTON CRACK.
(Don’t they look yummy?? THAT’S BECAUSE THEY ARE!!!)
