  • 1 loaf of sourdough bread
  • 6 tbs olive oil divided
  • 3 tbs garlic salt divided
  • 3 tbs grated parmesan divided


  • Cut the bread in to 3/4 inch pieces. Spread an even layer of croutons on parchment lined baking sheet. 1 loaf of bread will fill 3 baking sheets.
  • For each baking sheet full of croutons drizzle on 2 tbs olive oil, 1 tbs garlic salt and 1 tbs grated parmesan. No need to toss to combine.
  • Cook in 300 degree oven for about 30 minutes, tossing the croutons every 10 minutes and rotating cookie sheets if necessary. Cook until golden brown and crispy.


Store in a ziploc bag. Will keep for 3 months. Use in salads or to top soups.
Feel free to use any bread you have on hand such as italian or whole wheat. If you don't want to make a whole loaf, recipe can easily be scaled down to make smaller servings.
