Homemade Croutons

Homemade Croutons

Who needs store bought croutons when you can make your own and make it so much better!  This recipe is so simple and can be made ahead for up to a week!


1 loaf sourdough bread chopped into 2-inch pieces

olive oil

Kosher salt

Freshly ground black pepper

Place the chopped sourdough pieces onto a jelly roll pan evenly so none are overlapping.  Drizzle with just enough olive oil to gently coat and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Toss with hands to evenly coat bread and put into a 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes, flipping with a spatula once in the middle of cooking time.  Remove from from oven when the croutons are lightly golden.  Let cool and use for salads or soups!
