Croutons make soups and salads more exciting! I'm sure you will agree with that. When you can't get hold of shop bought croutons, do not fret. All you need is your usual bread and you're good to go!

The recipe below is a simple non fussy recipe for quick garlic croutons.

bread - 5 slices ( I used wholemeal)
garlic, minced - 2 to 3 cloves
butter, melted - 2 tbsps
olive oil - 2 tbsps
mixed dried italian herbs/seasoning - 1 tsp
pinch of salt

  • Cut the bread slices into 1 inch cubes. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the butter, olive oil , garlic,salt and the italian seasoning.
  • Pour it over the bread cubes. Toss well to coat.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment paper and lay the bread cubes on it in a single layer.
  • Bake in a pre heated over at 220 degrees for about 8  minutes or until browned and crisp.
  • Serve immediately along with your favourite soup or salad.
  • To re heat the croutons, place in a singe layer in a preheated oven for a few minutes to crisp up.
