My husband made these with my leftover homemade bread. They were so tasty! Just be sure not to soak the croutons in the olive oil, so they won't turn out soggy. Delicious!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 loaf sourdough bread
  • 5 fluid ounces olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, pressed or very finely chopped (or more, to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons dried mixed Italian herbs or 2 teaspoons spices (OR be creative and mix your own favourite dried spices)


  1. Cut the loaf in half lengthwise and scoop out all the soft bread – DO NOT use the crust.
  2. Tear the bread into ½” to ¾” chunks.
  3. Whisk or blend together the oil, salt, pepper, garlic and mixed spices.
  4. Toss the bread chunks in the oil mixture, making sure that they are all coated.
  5. Preheat the oven to 300° Fahrenheit.
  6. Place them on a large baking sheet and bake in oven for 15- 20 minutes, turning them every 5 minutes, until they are golden brown.
