Do you ever wonder what to do with slightly stale bread?  Have you ever added a salad to dinner at the last minute and realized you don’t have croutons?

Homemade Garlic Herb Croutons are extremely easy.  They take only a couple of minutes and everyone will love them!  

The night we made these I didn’t think there would be any left by dinner time.  My daughter came into the kitchen to help with dinner and saw them sitting there.  Before I knew it a significant amount of them were GONE!  They’re so good, they don’t even need salad.

My favorite thing about this recipe is it’s versatility.  Any bread will work, although French, sour dough or other thick sliced bread works best. For seasoning, I used a Bread Dipping seasoning and garlic but your favorite seasoning can be used to suit your family’s taste.  Try different spices with different salads or soups. 

Here’s the Recipe:

4-5 slices of bread ( I used sliced bread from Panera Bakery)

olive oil

garlic powder

Italian herbs (I used “dipping” herbs)

I recommend hiding them until ready to serve…

otherwise they may to disappear!

    I would have to hide them for sure! And I bet they are much better than store bought croutons. They look yummy and would be a welcome addition to salad or soup. Pinning!

    Yum!! I forget to buy croutons all the time, and when I think about how easy they are… well, they’re awfully overpriced, aren’t they?? Thanks for the recipe!
