  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Lightly grease a large baking sheet, set aside.
  • Cut French bread into ½ to 1” cubes (about 12 to 18” loaf of French bread).
  • Drizzle with olive oil, stir to combine.
  • Sprinkle half the garlic salt on the bread, stir. Sprinkle the rest and stir again.
  • Sprinkle half the garlic powder on the bread, stir. Sprinkle the rest, stir until evenly distributed.
  • Spread the seasoned bread cubes in one layer on prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake 10 minutes, stirring once halfway through.
  • Set aside to cool.



The cooking time will vary depending on the size of your bread cubes and how crispy you like your croutons. I like mine slightly soft, so I cut them larger and bake for 10 minutes. For crispier croutons cut smaller cubes and bake for 10 minutes, then check and bake longer if desired. They will crisp more after being removed from the oven.
