  • 3 slices of bread preferably stale
  • 30 ml olive oil
  • 30 g butter
  • 1/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/4 tsp salt & pepper
  • 1/4 tsp basil


  1. Cube your bread. If you're not fussed by them then leave the crusts on to save time/cut waste. 

  2. Melt together your butter and olive oil. Drizzle over the cubed bread. 

  3. Sprinkle on your choice of herbs/seasonings. I like garlic, salt & pepper and basil. 

  4. If you want to save time/effort then brush the bread before you cube it. 

  5. To make your homemade croutons a little healthier then use brown or seeded bread and use spray oil instead.

  6. Bake in the oven at gas mark 4 (180c) for 15-17 minutes. They are cooked once lightly browned.
