Real Croutons

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 10 mins
Servings 1 large family salad


  • baking sheet


  • 1 old loaf of bread (preferrably sourdough or other good bread)
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • 1 tsp good flaky garlic salt
  • pepper


  • Preheat your oven for 350 degrees. Divide the old or stale bread by tearing into even pieces. Lay flat on a baking sheet. Cover with olive oil, garlic powder, oregano, salt and pepper. Toss together well. Bake for 5 minutes, toss with spatula, then bake another 5-7 minutes. Watch carefully the first time you bake, ensuring peices arent burnt. You want to see them still white before golden. This way there is still a little chewyness in the crouton.
