Crunchy Croutons

These croutons are a FAB way to use up that loaf of bread that you bought a couple of days ago.

They are so versatile too. Here, I have added S&P and garlic for a classic combination to go with my salad, but you could add any flavouring you like. A fajita mix to go with a chicken salad or some chilli to add to your tomato soup. YUM!


Loaf of bread (a few days old is better)

Olive Oil

S&P (Salt and Pepper)

Garlic Powder


- Preheat the oven to 180c/350f

- Using a bread knife, cut your bread up into small chunks. Roughly 5cm cubes.

- Now, add the bread to a roasting tray and drizzle over olive oil, then season with your garlic and S&P

- Bake in the oven for 10 minutes then take out and shake. Bake for another 10 minutes.

- If they start to brown too much, lower the heat until they are nice and crunchy.

- Serve with your salad and ENJOY!

These can be kept in an airtight container for a few days and also enjoyed in a delicious soup or just as a snack!
