Serve with hot soup, chilled salad, as a snack, or on a cheese board, these croutons are made in minutes with baguette, butter, spices and parmesan cheese.
Servings: 48 croutons
- 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
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.
Plan ahead to slice the baguette and dry overnight to get the croutons nice and crisp.
Use a new or day-old baguette loaf of bread.
