A crouton is a piece of sautéed or rebaked bread, often cubed and seasoned, that is used to add texture and flavor to salads, notably the Caesar salad, as an accompaniment to soups, or eaten as a snack food. The word crouton is derived from the French croûton, itself derived from croûte, meaning “crust”.
Make CROUTONS at home –
Preheat oven at 200 C / 400 F
To begin with, take your bread slices and cut them however big or small & in whatever shape you like. I went for the traditional cubes.
Add the cut bread cubes to a baking pan.
Drizzle with oil, mix it up to distribute oil evenly.
Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the bread cubes are crispy.
If you want the texture to be more crispy, bake longer. But look out after the 15th minute, chances of burning are high!
Serve with salads or soups.
