Homemade Oven Baked Croutons

55

When my friend Emily introduced me to her homemade oven baked croutons, I just couldn’t turn back to the hard ones from the box anymore. These puppies are melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and rather quick to whip up! Either fresh or stale bread can be used in this recipe, although stale bread is easier to cut and crisps more quickly in the oven (but I kinda like it softer). To use stale bread, reduce the baking time by about two minutes. Croutons made from stale bread will be more crisp than thos

12
12 slices white sandwich bread or a loaf of french bread sliced cut into ½-inch cubes (about 6 cups)
6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 T Italian Seasoning
Salt
Pepper
1. Heat oven to 400 degrees and plan to place the sheet on the top oven rack. Combine bread cubes, butter, seasoning, salt and pepper to taste in medium bowl. Toss well with spatula to combine. 2. Spread croutons in single layer baking sheet (with edge). Bake croutons, turning halfway, until golden brown and crisp, 8 to 10 minutes. After cooling, croutons can be stored in an airtight container or plastic bag for up to 3 days. Enjoy!!! Have you ever made your own croutons before? I didn’t realize I could!
