Homemade Croutons


Homemade Croutons: the perfect pairing from soup to salad. I’ve always said if I could eat one thing for the rest of my life it would have to be salad (and pizza of course!) I turned into a salad junkie young thanks to Monday nights at my grandmother’s house.  She would place a huge bowl of lettuce with tiny bowls filled with any and every topping you could imagine.  One ingredient that always made it to my plate were croutons.  Now whenever making a huge salad, homemade croutons are a must.  They elevate any salad (try them in tomato basil soup too) to a new level.


  • French Bread
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Italian seasoning


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Grab your french bread and cut into slices. Then cut slices into cubes.
  3. Drizzle Olive oil, salt, pepper, and italian seasonings on bread and mix.
  4. Spread bread onto a baking pan and bake until golden brown.


  • French bread consistency may be different. The french bread that I used from a local bakery only took about 6 minutes to bake, but other breads may differ. Just watch croutons until turning golden brown (shouldn’t be more than 10 minutes.)
