  • 1 ea Loaf of Bread I used a Wisconsin 4 cheese bread from a local bakery. Have some fun with this!
  • 1/4 cup Olive Oil I used garlic infused here
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder Adjust to your liking
  • 1/4 tsp Salt Adjust to your liking


  • Gather your ingredients. Set your oven for 375 degrees.
  • Cut your bread into cubes of your preferred crouton size. Keep in mind they'll shrink a little when you cook them (but not much).
  • Put the cubes into a bowl. Drizzle them with the olive oil and then sprinkle with the spices. Move them around to ensure they get well coated in the flavors.
  • Lay the cubes out on a baking tray ensuring no pieces are touching each other.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes. Time will vary based on your bread, cube size, etc. Keep an eye on them and pull them when they're reached a level of crunch that meets your satisfaction. Enjoy!


  • Play around and have fun here.  Try different kinds of bread.  Maybe add some spice to go with Cajun Croutons…. so many possibilities!
