Homemade Croutons

Makes 2 Cups or 8 – ¼ cup servings

Ingredients

  • 4–6 slices whole wheat bread, cubed
  • 2–3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper (optional)
  • 1/8 teaspoon additional spices such as crushed red pepper, garlic powder, onion powder (optional)

Preparation

  1. Mix cubed bread, olive oil, salt, pepper, and any other spices you desire in a large bowl until bread is evenly coated.
  2. Transfer to a parchment covered baking sheet. Spread evenly so croutons do not overlap as much as possible.
  3. Bake at 400 degrees for approximately 10 minutes, or until toasted.
  4. To store, place in an airtight container or bag and keep in your pantry for approximately one week.
