Home-made Garlic and Parmesan Croutons
|Home-made Garlic and Parmesan Croutons|
Now of course you can, use any bread, or even make a smaller batch of this same recipe I'm posting below. In fact this exact same recipe appears here, if a dozen or so baguettes seems too much. On the other hand, you can make a few for tonight fresh, and sit the rest out for croutons in a few days. Your choice.
So first step, get some bread. I made my crouton's from this recipe a few days prior:
Baker's Dozen Baguettes
one 5lb bag of bread flour 6 1/4 cup water 1 Tablespoon of salt 1/4 cup + 1.5 teaspoon yeast
Follow the directions here, (you will need a very large bowl for this mix) and bake at 450F. If using the same day, bake for about 18-20 minutes, then allow to cool.

Garlic and Parmesan Croutons
- A bit of salt and pepper
- Spritz of cooking oil
- Garlic powder
- Parmesan cheese
Bake for another 6-10 minutes at 450F, or until toasted to normal, delicious, crouton consistency, and enjoy!
Hands down probably the best homemade croutons in the world. Certainly the best I've tasted.
