Homemade Croutons

I said to put some small recipes separately, such as croutons - as if everyone knows them but it's good to repeat and possibly learn something new. I knew them, but I saw this method at the restaurant where I had practiced and since then I have only done so.

They can be used in soups-creams, salads, and simple with a beer or tomato juice.


White bread
200 g
you can use any bread, I usually use older bread that no one wants to eat. Here in the recipe I used wholemeal homemade bread.
Olive oil
3 tbsp
or sunflower oil
0.5 tsp
add to taste, if you want them saltier or less salty
Garlic powder
1 tsp
0.5 tsp
a must

Mix well with your hands or a spatula, so that the spices and oil reach all the pieces of bread.

Step 4

Place the tray in a preheated oven at 180 degrees, preferably with ventilation - but not mandatory.

Be careful on the phase because they are made very quickly, it would be good to mix them a little until they are done - at least 1-2 times.

Step 5

When lightly browned, they are ready. Be careful because the transition from slightly browned to burnt is very short, they immediately turn black if you are not careful.
