Store bought croutons are easy. But these are so awesome, it's worth the effort. Double the recipe and store extras in the fridge or freezer.
- 5 slices bread gluten free, sourdough, sprouted, whatever!
- 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar substitute with any vinegar
- 1 Tbsp. water
- 1/2 tsp. garlic salt
- 1/2 tsp. onion powder
- 1/4 tsp. smoked paprika substitute chili powder or regular paprika
- 1/2 tsp. rosemary substitute thyme, oregano or Italian seasoning
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Whisk vinegar, water and spices in a small bowl.
Chop or tear bread into small chunks. Drop into the marinade and stir until all chunks are coated.
Bake for 15 minutes, stirring periodically to ensure they don't burn. Remove from oven when they are crispy.
Store extras in a sealed container in the refrigerator. Add to anything and everything.
