Making bread croutons with spices for soups and salads:
Step 1: Cut the bread correctly.We take our blackened loaf, cut the crust from it, cut into slices, and each of them cut into medium-sized cubes.
Step 2: Prepare seasoning for croutons.You can take any spices you want. If you are at a loss with a choice, I’ll give you several options for seasoning: garlic, ground black pepper, basil, rosemary, thyme, oregano, onion. In this recipe we will make a small mixture of spices, you can choose from the proposed ones. Take a saucepan, pour a small amount of spices there, add salt. Finely chop the garlic and fry in a pan for 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly. It is better to take olive oil, it is more fragrant, but sunflower oil is also suitable. When the oil is saturated with the taste of garlic, you need to remove it from the heat, cool, and remove pieces of garlic from it.
Step 3: Season and prepare bread croutons with spices.We spread our bread slices in a pan with spices, shake it so that the spices are properly distributed on future croutons and pour the garlic oil. Shake again. Now we transfer the mixture to a baking sheet and bake in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. Such croutons are the most fragrant and crispy. There is another option, bread slices, already breaded in spices, spread in a pan and fry in garlic oil until golden brown. This method seems to me less successful, but the taste and color, as they say!
Step 4: Serve the finished bread croutons with spices.As already mentioned, prepared croutons are well suited as decorations and additives to soup, and some types of salads. As an example, let me give you the classic Caesar salad. Diversify the tastes of already familiar dishes with fragrant and crispy bread croutons with spices! Enjoy your meal!
