Home made Croutons from Baguette | How to make Croutons

Croutons, a small pieces of crunchy baked bread served along with soups.Whenever i had plan for making soup at home, i just grab a bag of croutons from the grocery shop, it adds nice texture to the soup. But the recently bought ones are not so good and found it super salty which i don't like it at all and haven't had a single piece of croutons. That's when i started searching for the recipe online and amazed how easily it can be made and customized at home. In today's recipe, i haven't used much spices or herbs in the croutons,just gone with simple garlic flavor. But you can add any dried herbs as per your liking.Now let's check out the recipe.

  • If you like little more brown on top of the croutons, keep it in the oven for few more mins.
  • Make sure to flip the bread pieces once in between while baking.
  • Here i have used a pinch of salt only, since i found that the salt in the bread is enough, but feel free to add more as per your liking.

  • Instead of whole garlic, garlic powder can also be used.
