I have a friend who owns an ice cream shop near my work called The Blue Pig. During the fall she starts serving soup and starts making these ahhhhhhhhhhhmazing garlic butter croutons. Sometimes I will go to her shop, chat and then starts shoveling fists full of these gems into my mouth. They are that good!

They are even better served on top of homemade tomato soup and of course on salad. Or, you could easily just sit down with a bowl and treat them like potato chips. It’s your call. I won’t judge you.

These beauties are tossed in butter, garlic and lots of salt. These are not the “low-fat” croutons so you should probably eat them in moderation. Unless you are a fan of delicious goodness. Then you should probably shovel them into your mouth by the fistful. Again, no judgement here. I certainly wouldn’t blame you.

Homemade Garlic Butter Croutons

These homemade garlic butter croutons are full of flavor and perfect on top of soup or salad. Full of flavor and ready in just about 30 minutes.

Yield: 6 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf crusty French bread - left out overnight
  • 1 stick unsalted butter

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Cut French bread into 1-inch squares and set aside.

I made these yesterday to serve with home made tomato basil soup. I need not have worried about how to store the croutons. They were all gone by the end of the day. They were absolutely delicious in the soup, but there was a lot of snacking going on. Yum!!!

Although I expect they won't last long, how should the croutons be stored?

Hi Cheryl! I usually just put them in a air tight container like a Tupperware or ziptop bag. Hope you enjoy the croutons :)

2" squares? How does one fit a crouton of that size in their mouth? Besides, your pics do not show croutons that big. Misprint?
