Homemade Croutons by Morcash

Morcash Sweat


My mom invited us to a dinner for Lasagna, and I wanted to bring the salad and french bread I had just bought. She also had salad, so we decided to combine our salads. I noticed that I happened to have a 1/4 loaf of white wheat bread just sitting around in the kitchen. I need to use this up, so I decided to quickly make croutons.
These were such a hit that I didn't make time to snap a picture of them before they were gone! But, I decided to make a new batch just for pictures from some hamburger buns I had leftover too!

How to Make Homemade Croutons by Morcash


  1. Heat oven to 275 degrees.
  2. Spray cooking spray with canola oil onto baking pan. I used a disposable round pizza pan.
  3. Slice all bread into bite size cubes about 1/2" in size. Spread bread onto baking pan, and spray bread with cooking spray.
  4. Sprinkle the sweet basil and garlic powder onto bread cubes. Spray cooking spray again, so that basil and garlic powder are locked onto bread.
  5. Pop baking pan of bread into 275' oven for 25 minutes. Turn oven off after 25 minutes, and leave bread cubes in hot oven for about 15-20 minutes. Bread cubes will begin to dry & harden to that toasted crunchiness when left in hot oven.
