Sourdough Croutons

Since I am a newer sourdough fanatic I have quite a bit of extra sourdough. Honestly, I try not to eat the whole loaf in a couple days so I usually have a quarter of loaf hanging around and found the perfect use of stale sourdough.. Sourdough CROUTONS!

Sourdough croutons provide the perfect crunch to a fresh salad. This homemade version of sourdough croutons does not contain any extra ingredients.


  • 6-8 cups cubed sourdough bread (at least one day old, or sliced and dried; ¾-1 inch cubes)
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced 
  • ½ – 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


How to Make Sourdough Croutons:

  1. Preheat your oven to 400ºF and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. If you haven’t already, cut your sourdough bread into ½-1″ cubes. 
  3. Add the olive oil, garlic, salt, dried parsley, and black pepper to a very large bowl. Whisk to combine.
  4. Add the cubed dried bread cubes and toss them until they are lightly coated with oil.
  5. Spread the sourdough bread cubes out onto the prepared baking sheet in a single layer. 
  6. Bake until browned, 12-18 minutes (mine were done at 15), tossing halfway through baking to ensure even browning. 
  7. Allow your sourdough croutons to cool completely before transferring to an airtight storage container or ziploc bag. 

Seriously the best!
