I made these garlic parmesan croutons at home last week. I have been eating a lot of salads lately and I find that croutons make the salad taste so much better! I originally had bought a bag of croutons at the store.. I think a small bag was about $2.
I thought about how much croutons I could make from a whole loaf of bread and I decided to make my own croutons.
- White bread
- Dried Parsley Leaves
- Garlic powder
- Salt + Pepper
- Cajun Seasoning
- Grated Parmesan Cheese
I cut up all the pieces of bread into small squares and spread them on an oven tray. I added all of the ingredients, except for parmesan cheese, and mixed everything together. The oven was set to 400F and it took about 10-15min for the bread to turn golden brown. While the croutons were hot and fresh out of the oven, I sprinkled some parmesan cheese over. The cheese will melt after awhile and it tastes amazing!
After they cool, I store them in ziploc bags. I put them over salads or I just eat croutons alone as a snack :)
