Basic Bread Croutons

From Umma Yori


  • 4 cups bread cubes from old bread (but make sure they aren't moldy) / the ends and the crust that you didn't like
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  1. Pre heat the oven to 350 degree.
  2. Place the bread cubes in a large bowl. Pour the melted butter over the bread cubes and toss to distribute the butter evenly.
  3. Place the bread cubes on a shallow baking tray and bunk it in the oven for about 20 minutes or till bread chunks are fully dehydrated and crunchy, stirring every 5 minutes for even toasting. The colour should be light golden brown.
  4. Allow the croutons to cool completely, then store them in an airtight container. Freeze them for longer storage.
