Garlic Parmesan Homemade Croutons


  • 1 baguette of flavorful sourdough bread
  • 1 large stick of high-quality butter
  • 4 cloves of fresh garlic
  • 1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of salt
  • Optional: 1/3 cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese for an extra savory kick


  1. Preheat your oven to a toasty 325°F.
  2. Begin by transforming the baguette into bite-sized 1-inch cubes. This ensures the perfect balance of crispiness and chewiness in every crouton.
  3. In a culinary dance of flavors, melt the stick of butter, infusing it with richness.
  4. Create a fragrant blend by combining the melted butter, extra virgin olive oil, finely diced garlic, and a tablespoon of kosher salt in a bowl. Mix these ingredients until they form a harmonious marriage of flavors.
  5. Take your cubed bread and immerse it in this luscious mixture, ensuring each piece is generously coated. This step sets the stage for the croutons’ golden perfection.
  6. For an indulgent twist, consider adding 1/3 cup of freshly grated Parmesan cheese to the bowl. This optional addition elevates your croutons to a new level of savory delight.
  7. Spread the coated cubes evenly on a baking sheet, allowing them to bask in the oven’s warmth for 15 to 20 minutes. Keep a watchful eye until they achieve a delightful crispy texture and a golden brown hue.

Once you pull them from the oven, these Garlic Parmesan Homemade Croutons will add a burst of flavor and a satisfying crunch to your salads or soups. Enjoy the culinary magic you’ve created!
