I’m a big fan of croutons. Making croutons is very easy. You really can’t go wrong, even if you burn them it’s no big deal cause it’s only left over bits of bread.
This is a great tasting use for odd bread pieces.
Cut into cubes.

Season with Herb salt,
onion and garlic powder
Toss to coat.
add a little more olive oil if it seems too dry.
I singled out some of them and rubbed them facedown in the olive oil. They’d been escaping my tossing.
Bake at 375 for20 minutes.
Serve on salads.
or munch them as an unofficial snack.
Feel good about giving old bread a second chance.
Home made Croutons
- a half a loaf worth of odd bread pieces
- 3-5 table spoons olive oil
- cayenne, salt, garlic powder and onion powder to taste
Cut bread into cubes. In a baking pan mix bread cubes with olive oil. season to taste with salt, cayenne, garlic powder and onion powder. Add more olive oil by the spoon full if they look too dry. Bake at 375 for at least 20 minutes plus minus. Depends on how crunchy you like and what type of bread you’re using.
