Have you tried J-Dub’s homemade croutons? These delicious homemade croutons can be used on any salad, but fresh romaine topped with Caesar Salad Dressing is my favorite way to go.


1 loaf fresh bread from bakery department (I used Asiago Cheese Bread, but sourdough, french, ciabatta all work well) 

1 stick Butter

1/2 cup avocado oil

3 large cloves roasted garlic, minced (you may substitute freshly minced garlic)

2 teaspoons kosher salt (I use Red Diamond)

2 teaspoons pepper


  1. Preheat oven 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Cut bread into 1” chunks and place in bowl.
  3. Melt butter in skillet.
  4. Add Oil.
  5. Turn off heat and add minced roasted garlic. If you are using fresh garlic leave heat on for 30 additional seconds until fragrant.
  6. Pour mixture carefully over bread chunks and toss bread to coat completely.
  7. Dump bread back into skillet, it will be overflowing.
  8. Bake for approximately 30 minutes, checking and turning the bread every 10 minutes so that the chunks brown evenly.
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool on rack.
  10. Store in air tight container for approximately 3 days.

I hope you enjoy J-Dub’s homemade croutons. Let me know what you think.
