Ciabatta Bread Croutons Recipe

Yes, these are yummy and easy to make. I make these croutons for soups. Sprinkle on soups to give them a more hearty appeal.

Pre-heat oven 350F

It is best to get these in the discounted bread area or just buy fresh. I bought a pack of 7. Cut them into small pieces. Put into a large bowl and drizzle Olive oil in. I estimate 1/4 cup of olive oil. Mix with utensil or hands.

Pout onto one or two baking sheets and spread out evenly. Place in pre-heated oven of 350F. Bake for 20 minutes. Check the croutons after 10 minutes and mix a bit. When toasty and starting to brown, pull out of oven and set aside to cool. Use right away or place in zip lock bags or over airtight seal container. store at room temperature.

You could add spices if you want, but they are very good as is. Try making croutons with other breads.

Good on salads, soups, and general snacking.

Enjoy.
