I love these homemade croutons! I usually save the "ends" of bread loafs (everyone in my family refuses to eat the "ends") in a bag until I have enough to make a nice size batch of croutons. Little do they know, the yucky "ends" get made into the awesomely delicious croutons that they fight over! NOTE: I use the ends from all types of bread, whole wheat, white, oatmeal, etc. They all taste great!!

This is the best crouton recipe ever. It's easy and delicious. The key truly is tossing the bread with the oil in a bowl. As far as seasonings go, well, be creative. You really can't mess these up. With how easy these are and how much you will enjoy them, you will never go back to buying croutons again. PS...you really don't have to use much oil at all. Experiment with 8 slices of bread with 2 Tablespoons oil, the oil will go far.

Fantastic! I used Tone's Canadian Steak Seasoning (from Sam's Club) and added some parmesan the last half of baking. They are so yummy much better than the packaged kind. Thanks for posting!

These are soo tasty! Light and airy and easy, easy, easy. I used onion rolls that were ready to go in the bin...tossed them with garlic and sea salt for the most fantastic ceazar salad. Thanks!

Brilliant! I hate throwing away artisan breads when we don't eat them all and this was a great way to use it up and not waste the 'leftovers!' Thanks so much for sharing!

These are so delicious and a great way to use up old bread. I used white bread instead of burger or hot dog buns. I used about 6 tablespoons of olive oil and garlic powder/ Italian seasoning. Used them over a salad last night and we'll probably eat the rest as a snack.

I needed croutons for a breakfast casserole. I haven't made the casserole yet, but the croutons turned out great. Very easy to make. I used garlic powder and onion powder on mine because the recipe I had called for onion & garlic seasoned croutons. So simple to make!

I had leftover hamburger buns that were just going to go out to the birds, so I decided to try this recipe. They are very yummy! In fact, I am on my second batch right now. Not many of these ended up on my salad, I ate most of them just as a snack!!

Thanks! This worked out great in a pinch! I had leftover French bread and used olive oil, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and they were great! I was in a big hurry, so I ended up sticking the on broil for 1-2 minutes per side. A few of them got a little dark, but they were fine. YUM! :)

These are extremely Delicious! Sooo much better than store bought. I did want more flavor with mine so I made up a mix of seasoned salt, pepper, garlic powder, and italian seasonings. I put a little more olive oil on them to evenly coat them all. And forget stirring it all with a spoon, just get in there and use your hands! They came out crisp and buttery and their so addicting to just eat them when they come right out of the oven. This is a keeper!
