How to make croutons for bread stuffing

Even if you’re not making stuffing to go with a Thanksgiving turkey, you’ll love these tasty croutons. They’re delicious tossed into salads, soups, and ground into toasted breadcrumbs for casseroles.

Use this gluten free focaccia bread recipe, adding garlic, thyme, and sage. Layers of flavor make homemade croutons even tastier.

Homemade Croutons

Cube 1 lb. focaccia bread.

Drizzle 3 tablespoons olive oil or melted butter over bread.

Sprinkle liberally with rosemary sea salt. Toss cubes and spread evenly onto 2 baking sheets.

Bake for about 30 minutes in a low oven, 250-275 degrees, until toasty. Stir croutons several times during baking to ensure even browning.

Ready to make dressing?  Here’s my favorite recipe for gluten free bread stuffing.

    Hi, I just wanted to know if you could give me more information on how to make garlic bread. I know you said to just use the baguette bread recipe but how much garlic to put in and when should i add it to the dough? you also mentioned to add some rosemary and sage, how much to add when making the bread? Thank you so much in advance. I am new at making gluten free bread but was glad to find your site. so far very helpful. Thank you, Cristina.

    • Stir chopped garlic in just before shaping and baking the bread. The exact amount is really a matter of personal taste. I’d use 2 or 3 teaspoons of minced garlic. Of course, you could add bigger, chunkier pieces of garlic instead. I like to sprinkle dried rosemary and thyme on top of dough before baking, but you could stir it into dough as well at any point. I use sage especially when the croutons are destined for Thanksgiving stuffing. The exact amount is a matter of personal taste again, but I’d add 1/2 teaspoon of rosemary and maybe 1/4 teaspoon of sage. I’ll be posting a new (simplified) bread recipe soon, so check back if interested. Hope that helps!
