How to make Croutons

Croutons are pieces of sautéed or rebaked bread, often cubed and seasoned, that are used to add texture and flavor to soups or salads.


2 cups stale bread, cut into cubes

1/3 cup olive oil

1 clove garlic

Salt & Pepper

Oregano or other herbs (optional)


In a food processor or mixer add all the ingredients, except the bread and mix.

Brush the bread with the dressing and cut it into 1 cm (½ inch) cubes.  (Otherwise you can pound the garlic and mix in the remaining ingredients).

Arrange the bread cubes on a baking sheet in a single layer and place in the oven.

Bake them in a preheated oven at 180o C / 350o F, until they start to brown. Turn them once and bake them for 5 more minutes.  Turn the oven off and let them cool in the oven. That will make them very crispy.

Note:  If you like you can make the croutons in a non stick frying pan.  You should keep mixing them until they are browned on all sides.
