Easy Croutons Recipe

Store leftover croutons in a sealed ziplock bag in the freezer. Warm the croutons in an oven or toaster oven whenever needed.

Serves: 2 cups

Prep Time: 10 mins

Cook Time: 15 mins

Ingredients

  • 3 slices bread cut to even-sized cubes
  • 50 grams butter
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper
  • 1 tbsp favourite herbs such as parsley, oregano, rosemary, Italian herbs either fresh, dried or combination of both

Directions

  1. In a heated saucepan, melt butter, garlic powder and salt, stirring to mix well. Coat bread cubes evenly in the melted butter mixture. Season with herbs and freshly cracked black pepper.
  2. Transfer croutons, one layer, onto a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake at pre-heated oven of 180°C (356°F) for 15 minutes, or until the croutons are golden and crispy. Add them as topping for your salads and creamy soups.

Noob Cook Tips:

  • Instead of soft bread, use sliced French baguette, cut to cubes.
  • For healthier choice, you may use olive oil instead of butter.

    I actually made a fuss free (more like lazy. Hee) recipe. I just glazed the cut bread with EVOO and chopped garlic/garlic powder (lazy me) and dump them in the oven. Taste just as good. Hehe. Will give this a try though. ;)

      butter is more sinful but aromatic. sometimes I made it with EVOO too. I’m going to try your mee soto recipe after the CNY holidays :)

    Again, I like the “cutting” method. Makes life in kitchen much easier!

    Hi Wiffy
    Can I use wholemeal bread instead of white?
    Also, how do I prevent fresh herbs from turning too dark under the oven grill? (My usual problem). I usually use dried herbs when baking for that reason. Thanks!

      Hi Carmen, yes, can use wholemeal bread. I’m using a mix of fresh and dried Italian parsley which did not dis-colour after baking.
