Croutons provide a nice crunch to anything they garnish, and they’re a great way to get rid of leftover bread. These were made to top our Apple-Chestnut Soup, but are also perfect for Roasted Pumpkin Soup for an herby finish to a puréed fall soup.


  1. 1Heat oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Toss bread cubes and parsley in a heatproof bowl to combine.
  2. 2Heat butter and olive oil in a small saucepan over medium-low heat until butter is melted. Pour butter mixture over bread cubes and toss well to coat. Season well with salt.
  3. 3Spread bread cubes in an even layer on a baking sheet. Bake until golden brown and crispy, about 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool and store at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
