How to Make Croutons

Homemade croutons are incredibly easy and super delicious (especially in comparison to the rock like option of prepackaged croutons). These croutons are lightly browned and crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Only one bowl and 15 minutes to make! Enjoy these croutons with any soup or salad. Sourdough bread is the best bread to use for croutons, other options include ciabatta or boule.
