     Garlic Parmesan Croutons



These are so good that you will make them again and again!





  2 cloves garlic, minced

•  1 Tbsp olive oil

•  1 Tbsp butter


•  3 cups bread, crusts removed, ¾-inch cubes

•  Sea salt & black pepper

•  3 Tbsp finely grated parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 325°F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


1.  Place the garlic, olive oil and butter in a glass measuring cup; microwave on high for 20 second



    remove and stir; repeat 2 more times until butter is melted.


2.  Place the bread cubes in a large bowl; add the garlic mixture and gently toss; repeat with the



     Parmesan cheese; toss again.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.

3.  Pour mixture onto prepared pan and place in the preheated oven. Bake for 15 minutes, remove and



     stir; return to oven and bake for 15 minutes more, until golden and crisp.  Cool completely.

     Place in an airtight container until use.


•   Do not use plain white bread that mashes easy.  Plus, you want the ¾-inch cubes so look for bread with

     thick slices or that you can slice to the proper size.

•  I like this size of crouton because they be used alone as an appetizer or can be used with a dip.

•  The croutons can be cut into ½-inch x 2-inch pieces for easier handling. These are great with our



    Marinara Sauce.
