8 cups croutons


  • 1 (1 pound) loaf brioche, cut into chunks

  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2 teaspoons dried basil, or to taste

  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic, or more to taste

  • 3 cups garlic butter, melted


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Place brioche chunks in a large mixing bowl. Add Parmesan cheese, basil, and garlic; pour in butter. Mix using a rubber spatula, being careful not to tear the bread. Spread on the prepared baking sheet.

  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 10 minutes.

Cook's Note:

This is really a based-on-your-taste recipe...some of you might use margarine instead of butter, some might use a butter substitute. Either way, the flavor is up to you. If serving chicken, replace the Parmesan with thyme.
