Homemade Croutons

I had so much bread slices sitting in my pantry. Then I got the idea of making these Croutons. Since they Multigrain Bread slices I want to make them tastier by adding garlic and herbs and I loved the outcome :).

Time of Preparation : 15 minutes


  • Multigrain Bread slices / White Bread / French Bread – 5
  • Olive oil (I have used “Its not butter made with olive oil”) – 2 tbsp
  • Garlic – 3 cloves (Grated)
  • Dried Basil – 1/4 tsp
  • Dried Oregano – 1/2 tsp
  • Parmesan cheese (finely grated) – 2 tsp (optional)

Method of Preparation:

  1. Cut the 4 sides of the bread and cut them to small squares.
  2. If you are using butter melt it and keep it aside.
  3. Add the grated garlic, dried basil, dried oregano, parmesan cheese and the butter and combine well.
  4. Spread them in a baking sheet or aluminium foil.
  5. Preheat the oven to 400 F and bake them for 10 to 12 minutes.
  6. Homemade garlic and herb croutons are ready.
  7. Serve them with sop or salad.
