Homemade Croutons

I love a good, toasty, chewy crouton. These are so simple to make and a really impressive addition to any dinner.


  • really good french stick, cubed
  • lots of butter
  • lots of garlic

  • Cut the bread into cubes and leave out for a few hours to dry out slightly (the longer you leave them, the less chewy they will be). I estimate about 3-4 croutons per person

  • For about 20 croutons, I use about 3 tbsp of butter. Melt it in a skillet

  • Add chopped garlic and mix well with butter. Keep on low-medium heat
  • Add bread, stir often and cook until browned on all sides

  • Pour into plate lined with paper towel and add to salad. You'll never go back to store-bought croutons again!
