Garlic Rosemary Croutons

9 Oct

Please don’t ever buy a bag of croutons, they are stale, loaded with preservatives, and are horribly over-seasoned. Croutons are so easy to make and this is a killer recipe that you can really take in your own direction and really build the flavors in the crouton around your whole dish. This work great on my Classic Caesar Salad but you can also make a little oregano and parmesan to top off a Bouillabaisse or tomato soup or with Cayenne Pepper and a dash of Paprika to dip into my delicious Hummus. The possibilities are endless.

What ya need:
1 loaf of your favorite bread, I prefer a french loaf
2 garlic cloves, minced
3-4 sprigs rosemary, chopped
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
Heres what ya do:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
2. Cut your loaf of bread into 3/4″ cubes and place in large bowl.
3. Whisk together your garlic rosemary, and olive oil and pour over the diced bread. Give them a good toss and make sure all the pieces are lightly coated.
4. Toss in the oven until crispy and golden brown, about 10-15 minutes. Throw em on your salad, soup, or dip.
