I got this recipe from I'm a quick and easy cook and this fit the bill. These croutons are great on a Southwest Caesar Salad.

Ingredients Nutrition

Great idea! I 'made' some croutons, out of a sourdough loaf, and followed the directions, as written. I also sprayed with Pam on foil, for easier cleanup. These were good, but next time I may use cayenne, for a little more bite. Thanks for a great recipe, PickyEaters; I'm going to try these on a blackened chicken salad.

I used hot smoked paprika & a foil lined pan to spray the croutons. I thought the idea was terrific. I love flavored croutons & this method will let me play. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2011.
