Homemade Croutons

When I make homemade sourdough bread I always am left with odd and end pieces. This is what I do with them since I don’t want to waste them. They are so delicious to snack on or put in salads.

Ingredients (for 2-3 salads)

  • A few slices of bread, hand torn (like 1 cup)
  • 1 tab of butter
  • Β½ Tbsp olive oil
  • Sprinkle of garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper


In a large saute pan, add olive oil, butter and bread. Heat to medium heat.

Toss frequently to coat bread. Add garlic powder, salt and pepper and keep tossing at a medium heat until golden brown. Lower heat and let dry out a few minutes for crispy croutons.
