Homemade Sourdough Garlic Croutons

September 29, 2016

Croutons are by far one of the easiest accouterments you can prepare yourself.  Foodista user Meagan Meyer submitted this recipe and we definitely think it is a winner.  Cubes of toasted sourdough are flavored with butter and garlic to get the perfect balanced of savory flavor.  Croutons can be sprinkled over of a pumpkin soup, tossed with a kale Caesar salad, or used as a topping for macaroni and cheese.
