My daughter made some croutons the other day and now I’m interested in learning how. I just needed a good recipe like this one to get motivated.
I LOVE adding croutons to my salads. I need to try making your recipe, looks easy enough!

I have always made my own croutons. My mom always did, so I take after her. Homemade is way better.

My teen loves snacking on croutons. Last time I made croutons he ate them up in a day.
Delicious! A great way to use up leftover bread. We always seem to have the heel of a loaf left!

Funny that I seen this post today since I just did this yesterday without a recipe. I wanted croutons with the salad I was going to make but didn’t feel like running to the store. Luckily I had a few slices of bread that were beginning to stale, so it worked out great. I used Italian dressing before baking them.
Whoa, I love croutons and this seems really easy thought i’ve never tried making them before. Well, first time for everything. Will give this a shot when I make a huge pot of tomato soup this week.
I have just the bread for this! I’ve been putting off making homemade croutons, but since I have everything I need, looks like tonight is the night
