Homemade Croutons

from Simply Playful Fare


  • 1 loaf of crusty bread (About 4 cups)
  • 1/4 – 1/2 C olive oil
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning or your favorite blend of dried herbs and spices
  • 2 tsp garlic salt


Cut the bread into cubes and add to a medium sized bowl.

Add the olive oil, Italian seasoning, garlic salt and mix well.

Spread the cubes out evenly on a baking sheet.  It doesn’t need to be greased, because the olive oil should prevent the bread from sticking.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes or until the croutons are done, turning halfway.  You will know they are done when the bread becomes hard and toasty.
