Garlic Croutons


Microwave Home Made Croutons

Serves: dozens
Est. preparation time: 30 min
Est. cooking time: 5-8 min
Recipe provided by: Bob Sibley



5 slices round sourdough bread
4 tbsp butter
5 to 8 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
3 tbsp Johnny's Garlic Spread & Seasoning Mix


We have these with salad almost every night. It's not that they are cheaper (though this is probably true). These croutons are distinctly different - crispier, tastier and unique. You can reduce the oil or alter the seasoning mix with a favorite of your own.

Try subsituting an extra 4 tbsp olive oil for the butter. Not only do you get "good LDL" low cholesterol croutons, we find that they are crunchier and that we prefer them!

All ingredients are approximate. You can adjust to suit your taste.

1. Use a 10" x 10" x 2" micro-safe baking dish. ( you can use any size, but should have some depth to it).

2. Cut crust from 5 slices of round sourdough bread.

3. Cut bread slices into ½" cubes, set aside

4. In baking dish, melt 4 tbs. butter (or substitute extra oil) & 5-8 tbs olive oil.

5. Stir in 3 tbs Johnny's Garlic Spread & Seasoning Mix.

6. Mix cubed bread in melted mixture and toss to coat cubes.

7. Microwave on HIGH until golden brown, stirring mixture every 1 ½ - 2

8. Spread croutons on paper towels to cool.

9. Store in plastic zip bag and refrigerate.
