How to Make Homemade Cajun Croutons

Step-by-Step

  1. Thaw your frozen bread. Cut into 1/2 cubes. Melt the butter and add the dressing and seasonings, but not the parmesan or pepper flakes.
  2. Pour your melted mixture over the cubed bread in a large bowl and toss. Next add the parmesan cheese and the pepper flakes and gently toss. Place in large foil pan.
  3. Bake at 250 degrees and turn every 15 minutes until completely dry and lightly browned. Let cool and store tightly to keep moisture out.
