As a family, we LOVE crunch, but I try my best to make sure chips don’t enter the house. These were made as a “hmm let’s try” recipe, and I got 1 tiny piece as my husband and toddler inhaled the entire tray in an afternoon. SO, I learned quickly to make a big batch and let everyone enjoy. They are perfect as a snack or to top a salad.

Tasty, homemade garlic croutons!


  • 3 cups of crusts cubes (torn apart into roughly 1cm-2cm pieces)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder


Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°F and line large baking sheet.

Step 2

Tear bread crust into 1-2 cm cube pieces and place in a large bowl.

Step 3

Drizzle olive oil evenly over bread cubes and toss to ensure they are evenly coated.

Step 4

Sprinkle onion and garlic powder over the oil and bread then toss again.

Step 5

Spread bread cubes on large baking sheet in an even layer.

Step 6

Place tray in oven and bake until golden brown.

Step 7

Toss half after 8 minutes, so both sides brown. Continue to bake. Time will depend greatly on the size of the cubes so keep a close eye starting at 12 minutes. Mine normally take 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!

  • Can be stored in an air tight container on the counter for about a week (they usually only last a day or two in my house).
