Homemade Oregano Spiced Croutons

Croutons, these crispy small bites when added to soups and salads makes a simple dish more flavourful and delicious as well. Though croutons are easily available in stores, its best to dish out at home with less efforts. Homemade bread slices works awesome for making some crispy croutons at home, however if you are a novice baker you can prepare your dose of croutons easily with store bought bread slices. However my today's croutons calls for homemade bread slices,olive oil and simple spice mixture i prepared myself at home. My spice mixture calls for dry oregano,chilly flakes,garlic powder, how simple na.

My homemade croutons came out extremely flavourful with super crispy outer. Tossed gently with a simple spice mixture and olive oil, once baked these bread slices came out utterly delicious and you cant just stop munching them. If you have some slightly stale bread slices sitting sadly, just give them a new life by baking them as croutons. Obviously homemade croutons are best when compared to the store bought ones. Parmesan cheese works awesome to bake some cheesy croutons too. However i want to bake mine something flavourful and mildly spicy, hence my spice mixture calls for some chilly flakes. These croutons are going to Bake-a-thon, a baking event am running thrice a week.
