Here, I've made garlic and Parmesan Cheese, although you could add your favorite herbs, such as parsley, thyme, oregano, or indeed some spices, such as Turmeric, paprika, cajun spice mix... actually the sky's the limit with how you want to make the taste.

I love to make my own croutons. I think, once you have done them, you won't ever go back to shop bought. They truly are delicious.


Often, croutons are used as a topping for salads, or to add when you serve soup, because of their crispy texture, it always adds another nice dimension to what you are eating.
