Croutons are cubed bread pieces which are baked or sautéed with butter or oil. You can even add your choice of flavor to it. These croutons can be eaten as a snack or add them in your soup to make it even more delicious. Croutons can be added in your salad too! I love garlic and decided to make croutons today flavored with garlic. I added some dried oregano, red chilli flakes and they turned out so good. These garlic oregano baked croutons are going to do rounds in this winter season with some comforting Shorba.
Croutons can be easily made at home. So, sharing a recipe for some yummy Garlic Parsley Baked Croutons today. I just ate them as a snack with a cup of ginger tea :)..It is one of the best ways to use leftover bread slices. I have not removed the sides of the bread. I would suggest to retain them as they add more crunchiness to the croutons.
