Recipes – Homemade Croutons

This recipe is one of many in my mixes cookbook out on Amazon right now. This book is available for both Kindle and in Print – I am just a print girl when it comes to cookbooks.


This morning we made another batch of croutons from day old bread that was given to us.  Today we had more than 10 slices so we adjusted the recipe to fit. You can also substitute herbs of your choice.



  • 10 slices of bread (sour dough is a favorite in our house)
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon oregano,
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt


Directions for mix:

Preheat oven to 350° degrees. Cube bread into desired size and toss into a bowl. Sprinkle the seasonings on top of the bread pieces.  Drizzle olive oil over the cubes and then toss gently.  After the bread is coated, layer on a cookie sheet. Do not allow the bread to overlap. Bake at 350 degrees for twenty minutes. Allow to cool. Place in an airtight container.
