Right On Croutons

Croutons are unbelievably simple to make. It’s a shame so many people just shake a box of them over their salads. The home-made ones always taste better, you can customize their shape and they don’t take that long to make!

Consider changing the seasoning to match your meal, or your salad.


  1. 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit.
  2. 2Cut up stale baguette into pieces no larger than 1″×1″×1″. Place in a bowl.
  3. 3Sprinkle enough olive oil over croutons to lightly coat (not soak).
  4. 4Add herbs, cheese, salt & pepper in small amounts and toss to coat each piece. Taste a couple and adjust as you please.
  5. 5Dump croutons onto a baking tray and space them out evenly. Place in oven for 10 minutes.
  6. 6Try to flip all the pieces over (not a big deal if you can’t) then place in the oven for another 10 minutes.
