Sage and Dill Homemade Croutons

Top your summer salads with these homemade, gourmet croutons.

Recipe by Lauren McElwain


  • 1 loaf Italian or French bread (day-old works best)

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon fresh sage, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill, chopped

  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Heat oven to 400°F, and cut bread into 1-inch cubes.


In a mixing bowl, whisk together olive oil, garlic and herbs. Pour in the bread cubes, and toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper.


Spread evenly on a roasting pan, and bake for 15 minutes. Stir twice during cooking to make sure all sides are browned.


Serve with soup or salad, or store in an air-tight container for use later.
