Homemade Olive Oil & Oregano Croutons

/ Leave a Comment
To make croutons, all you need is some bread, olive oil and seasoning. What bread, oil and seasoning you choose will determine how your croutons taste and look. My favorite bread to use is a day old multi-grain bread. This bread looks awesome when you tear it into bite size pieces...by tearing the bread it makes it look more authentic vs. processed. You can use as many pieces of bread as you'd like..depending on if you want to save some for later or just make enough just for your specific meal.  If the bread is too hard to cut but is still good to use, just pop it in the microwave, wrapped in a damp paper towel, for about 10-15 seconds to soften it up.

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Tear the bread up into bite size pieces. 
  • Use two tablespoons to 2 cups of bread pieces. Sprinkle seasoning onto bread mixture (you can use any other seasoning you like...for example, basil, thyme, rosemary, or garlic powder. Don't forget to sprinkle salt and pepper regardless of what additional spices you use).
  • Toss pieces onto baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until crispy.

I like to use my croutons for a caesar salad but you can use it for any kind of salad..OH M GEEE!! So yummy.
