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
  • 1-2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 cloves garlic - minced

Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

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

In a large pot melt down butter, add salt and garlic. Remove from heat and add in cut up bread. Toss until butter is soaked into the bread and flavors are evenly distributed over bread.

    You are so right about getting to know people’s eating habits after years!
    And I know that my husband would also require more than half of this sandwich. That melt cheesy AND BACON? Dead.
    Pinned!

    Oh man. No trip was complete to my Nana’s without buttered toast. Not quite as extravagant as grilled cheese but it was delicious and still to this day, reminds me of those times!

    Hello LOVE!!! This grilled cheese is certainly better than buttered toast–which ranks pretty high up there!

    I am pretty sure that it is a requirement (at least according to my son) to drop food on himself LOL. Those grilled Cheese Sandwiches would be worth the stain though! They look SOO good.
