Homemade Croutons

Posted on

I am making a nice potato and bacon soup tomorrow for lunch and I thought some nice croutons would add that extra punch.

4 cups 1/2-inch chunks stale bread
4 tablespoons butter, melted
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the bread chunks in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Lightly toss the bread chunks with the butter mixture then place on a large rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned and crunchy throughout.

Let cool then store in an airtight container until ready to use.
