Homemade Garlic Croutons

Croutons are not only good for salads. They are a great way to pick up juices from roasted chicken or a good foundation for a panzanella salad.

One classic way to use croutons is in a Caesar Salad. You can click the recipe link here or watch the video below on how to make a Caesar Salad and a an eggless Caesar salad dressing.

Everyone loves bread. Toasted bread is even better. That's basically what croutons are: Toasted bread. I like to use sourdough bread for croutons but any kind of hearty bread can work.

Croutons are one way to get some added crunch to your salads. But I will often eat these croutons as a side or anytime I need some savory bread. Why not? It's already deliciously seasoned.
