It’s time for another item to be marked off my Top 100 list. I love croutons and a salad really isn’t the same without them in my opinion. And croutons are so easy to make homemade. They are one of those things that I never really thought to make even though we always have the ingredients on hand. It’s really a weird day when we don’t have random odds and ends of bread lying around. In fact, I have some onion poppyseed ciabatta rolls that are just dying to become croutons.
Homemade Garlic Croutons
recipe from What’s Gaby Cooking
1 loaf french bread (a few days old)
3 tbsp olive oil
3 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp Italian seasoning
2. Cut the bread into small cubes. Transfer cubed bread to a parchment lined baking sheet.
3. Drizzle the bread with the olive oil and butter and then sprinkle with garlic, salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.
4. Using your hands, gently toss the croutons and make sure they are coated with all the oils, butters and seasonings.
5. Bake for 15-20 minutes until they are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool before serving.
