Homemade Butter Garlic Croutons
Homemade Butter Garlic Croutons are a perfect way to prevent wasted sourdough bread!
I’ve been making homemade sourdough bread because my boys will eat it better than store bought. Some weeks we have leftovers, I try to use it before it goes bad I know that’s not always a thing, so instead of wasting the sourdough I decided to make croutons.
I love to have salad for lunch during the week and croutons are a must have topping for that! Give these bad boys a try!
- 1/2 loaf Sourdough Bread, cut into 1 inch Squares
- 1 stick of butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
- In a large bowl, evenly drizzle the butter over the bread chunks. Then evenly sprinkle the garlic powder, salt and pepper over the bread. Toss gently until well-combined.
- Spread the bread cubes out in a single layer on a baking sheet.
- Bake until golden, turning once halfway through cooking in order to brown all sides of the croutons. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the cubes, so watch to be sure that they do not burn. (Mine generally take between 20 to 30 minutes.)
- Remove from oven, and let cool completely. Use immediately, or store in an air-tight container for up to 1 week.
