I’ve been on a sourdough kick lately so I always have a loaf in the kitchen and I’ve been loving making these croutons. I have an air fryer version but when I want to make a large batch, then I break out the sheet pan and turn on the oven to make these amazing garlic and herbs sourdough croutons.

Ingredients You’ll Need

Ingredients needed to make sourdough croutons.
  • sourdough bread — homemade croutons are perfect for when you have slightly stale bread hanging around the house. I love using sourdough for this recipe as it adds an extra tangy taste. Plus, sourdough is quick thick and sturdy.
  • oil — I use olive oil to crisp up the croutons but you can use any oil of your choice. Even flavoured oil!
  • seasoning — I seasoned my croutons with garlic powder and onion powder.
  • fresh herbs — I use fresh thyme but feel free to switch things around or use dried herbs instead.

Recipe Tips and Notes

  • If you do not have sourdough bread, you can make homemade sourdough bread with French bread, challah, brioche, milk bread, or any type of bread you have on hand.
  • Make sure you spread the homemade croutons into a single layer so each crouton bake evenly.
  • If you cut your croutons into smaller pieces, you will have to keep a closer eye on them as they’ll crisp up faster.
  • Rosemary is another herb I love to toss the sourdough croutons in.
  • For more flavour, you can toss the homemade croutons with freshly grated parmesan while they’re still hot.
