Add these Rustic Buttery Garlic Croutons to the top of your soup or salad to elevate it from good to fantastic!


  • 1 loaf of French bread (8 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 tablespoons oil 
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley 


  1. Tear bread into 1-2 inch pieces and place on a baking sheet.   
  2. In a small bowl, melt butter and add oil, garlic powder, onion powder, and parsley.  Stir to combine.
  3. Drizzle butter mixture over bread pieces and toss to coat evenly. 
  4. Place baking sheet on center rack of the oven and turn oven to broil.  Toast the bread pieces until the tops are golden brown, then remove from the oven, and stir.  Return to the oven to broil.  Watch carefully, this will only take 3-5 minutes. 
  5. Stir again, and then remove when nicely toasted on all sides.
