Home Made Croutons

Because why not?
Croutons are usually on our grocery list as we like a little crunch in our salads. It’s one of those things that is super easy to make, but had never occurred to me to make my own.

So as of today, let’s put an end to store bought croutons!

Like most home made things you can switch up the recipe by just adding a few different ingredients. With this recipe you can use all different types of breads and seasonings and each time you will get a very different result.

As soon as I came across a recipe I liked and saw that it called for olive oil my mind imminently thought of Blue Door Oil and Vinegar. If you haven’t heard of Blue door before you should definitely check it out. They sell like a bunch of different olive oils and balsamic vinegars all infused with different things, such as Butter infused Oil Olive, or Black Mission Fig Balsamic Vinegar (one of my favs) And the great thing is their store is set up so you can taste as many as you like.

Anyway back to the croutons, I must say, homemade croutons taste so much better, and are a lot better for you as there are no preservatives in them. This is definitely the way to go, plus it’s a great way to use up and stale bread! Enjoy!

  •  1 Loaf of Bread, Cubed
  • Olive Oil (I used Blue Door Organic Tuscan Herb)
  •  1 tsp of Garlic Salt
  • 1 tsp of Oregano
  • 1 tsp of Basil
  • 1 tsp of Rosemary
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Cube a loaf of bread, and lay the pieces on a large baking sheet.
2. Drizzle olive oil over bread pieces, and sprinkle the seasonings. Toss to coat evenly.
3. Bake until lightly toasted, mixing through out (approx 16 mins) Once cooled, store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
