We only use three ingredients here, which is why this works so well. Try to resist the temptation to add salt, pepper, or other spices, as the blue cheese will provide all the punch you need. We're going for pure blue cheese flavor in a buttery, crunchy package, and anything else would just get in the way.

  • Place bread cubes in a bowl and drizzle butter over the top. Sprinkle about 1/3 of the blue cheese over the top and stir until bread is coated. Sprinkle another 1/3 of the cheese over the top and stir to coat again. Spread bread cubes out onto prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until slightly crisp, about 15 minutes. Toss cubes and sprinkle remaining blue cheese over the top. Bake until browned and crispy, 15 to 20 minutes more.

Favorite croutons. They are wonderful as is and do not need any additions. However... I do add some fresh garlic to the butter even though the chef recommends not doing so. I just like garlic Read More

I halved this recipe. I had some whole wheat bread that I cubed up. It comes together quickly. My bleu cheese was a little tacky and clumped up so a little difficult to incorporate it with the the bread cubes. I think a white bread or a white whole wheat might have helped the bleu cheese shine through better. Used this as a topper for the roasted parsnips and apple soup. I have leftover croutons that I can use on salads. I would make this again. Read More

I have made these 3 times in the last two weeks! I LOVE them. My husband not a huge blue cheese lover thought they were the best croutons he'd ever had. You won't be disappointed! Easy to make too! Read More
