Homemade Croutons

I saw this recipe on the Cake Boss.  I have made my own before and they are so delicious!

Homemade Croutons:

  • day old hearty bread, such as tuscan, italian, or country bread, (half loaf to yield 2 + cups croutons)
  • olive oil
  • dried oregano
  • salt
  • pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Trim the crust from day-old peasant-style bread and dice into 3/4-inch cubes.
  3. Toss with enough olive oil to coat, but not drench. Sprinkle lightly with dried oregano, salt and pepper. Spread out on a rimmed baking sheet.
  4. Bake approximately 10 minutes or until just golden brown and crisp through. Toss halfway through the baking time, to make sure the croutons toast evenly.
  5. Remove from oven and completely cool croutons. Store in an airtight container.
