Garlic Parsley Croutons
Homemade croutons are a win win. We use up stale bread, a little fresh parsley, some garlic, drizzle of olive oil and seasoning to make this crunchy and delicious recipe. They are baked and not fried making for a healthier choice too.
Small mixing bowl
- 3 cups Stale bread
- 2 cloves Garlic
- 1 tbsp Parsley freshly chopped
- 1 tsp Oregano dried
- 2-3 tbsp Olive oil
- Salt to taste
Preheat the oven to 180℃.
In a small bowl mix the garlic, parsley, oregano and olive oil until combined.
Cut the bread into cubes and transfer to a lined baking tray.
Pour the marination over the bread and using your hands massage it until the bread has absorbed the marination.
Bake at 180℃ for 15-120 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes until golden on all sides.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper while still warm.
Let it cool before storing in an air tight container.
- Use stale bread to make this recipe, either 1-2 days old minimum.
- I like to grate the garlic but you can use a knife or mortar and pestle to mince the garlic.
- Don’t over crowd the pan when baking the croutons, as this will not allow them to crisp up. You rather bake them in two rounds.
