These are great! The directions for baking didn't yield crunchy croutons, but that was easily fixed by popping them back in a low oven for 20 or 30 minutes. Maybe it's the humidity here. The seasonings work together beautifully, and worked well with Creole Caesar Salad (230436) - a keeper!
These croutons do have some bite to them and for that they get a 5 star review. Thanks for kicking up my salads a notch. I eat salads most nights for my supper and sometimes they get to be a bit bland. Thanks for a keeper!!! Made for AU recipeswap~
These croutons were a real treat! I have never tried making homemade croutons, but so glad I tried this one. Followed instructions exactly by turning off oven and they came out real crunchy. The seasonings are very delish! Prepared as a participant for the 2008 Aus/NZ Swap #22.
I left out the cayenne and white pepper to make these milder. I loved the flavors of the garlic and onion. I didn't have pickled garlic either. Thanks Barbara! Made for PAC.
It's going to take a *strong* salad to stand up to the flavors in these croutons. ;-) Wowzer - these pups are spicy! Definitely glad I went with the low end on the cayenne. I too was missing the _pickled garlic_ ingredient so I subbed minced fresh garlic. I nibbled on a few - pretty good just as a snack. Since they're bigger than the croutons I usually make, I think I'll use some as soup _floaters_ too. Thanks for the fun recipe!
I had a partial loaf of left over bread so I pared the recipe down. The mix of herbs is very nice. I didn't have pickled garlic so I just used fresh. I'm not sure what the pickling would do to change the taste but we didn't miss it.
These were easy to make and tasty. I didn't have pickled garlic so used more garlic powder. I stored what I didn't add to a garden salad in a zip lock bag and they seem to be holding fine. Thank you for sharing your recipe! Reviewed for World Tour 3.
