Homemade Garlic Croutons

Croutons that are super easy, tasty and perfectly crunchy are a go-to at my table or a nice suggestion for a hostess gift if it happens that you are invited over someone for dinner. You want your bread to be at least a day old. It'll be easier to cut and holds it's shape better.Croutons are a great garnish for green salads, spoups or spicy sauces and they are simple and easy to make at home and so much better than store bought ones!

  • 2 baguettes
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • garlic
  • parsley

 In a small sauce pan, combine: 100ml extra virgin olive oil, 2 pressed garlic cloves and 1 table spoon of chopped parsley. Heat over medium heat until is hot. Stir to combine then set aside and let the flavors infuse into the oil while you chop your bread. Cut your bread into slices or 3/4″ cubesand don’t remove the crus t because it adds variety and great crunch to these croutons. Transfer to a  large tray.Spread the bread in a single layer and brush the seasoned olive oil over your chopped bread and turn them over on the other side as well so that it has  an even coating of oil. Cover with a foil sheet and bake at 190º for 20 minutes until they are golden brown and crunchy.
