Ingredients

  • 1 baguette sliced thin let slices dry out
  • ½ cup melted butter 1 stick
  • ½ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • 2-3 oz shaved parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • PRO TIP: If possible, prepare your baguette slices the night before and let dry out on sheet pan to get them really crisp. Slice the baguette into long diagonal slices about ¼” thick.
  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • In a large ziplock bag, combine the baguette slices, melted butter, grated parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and pepper. Set shaved parmesan aside for later. Shake the bag to coat the baguette slices.
  • Spread the slices out on a sheet pan lined with parchment paper, giving them space in between.
  • Bake the bread 10 minutes until slightly golden brown and crisp.
  • Flip over croutons and sprinkle shaved parmesan on top of each one.
  • Bake 5-10 more minutes until parmesan cheese melts and edges are golden brown.
  • Serve with soup, salad, as a snack, or on a cheese board.

Notes

slice ahead:

Plan ahead to slice the baguette and dry overnight to get the croutons nice and crisp.

bread: 

Use a new or day-old baguette loaf of bread.
