Cinnamon croutons taste great on salads and Butternut Squash or Pumpkin soup. They are slightly sweet and the cinnamon flavor makes these croutons really special!
To make these croutons you will need:
- 4 slices of Bread (25 g./0.9 oz)
- 1 teaspoon of sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 Tablespoon of butter, melted
Sliced bread comes in all different sizes. I’m using Pepperidge Farms Bread which I think makes the absolute best croutons or crumb toppings. The slices are somewhat smaller than a lot of other sliced bread. You may have to adjust the amount of sugar and cinnamon depending on the size of your bread.
Start by trimming off the crusts of the bread.
Then slice the bread into logs.
Now slice the logs into cubes. You can decide how big or small you want your croutons to be.
My bread is now cut and I have melted the butter in the microwave. I’ve measured out the cinnamon and sugar and I now need to mix it all together.
You can either mix everything together in a bowl…
or right on the baking sheet itself.
I really like cinnamon, so I’m going to add a bit more to my croutons.
Spread the croutons out onto a non-stick baking sheet.
Bake them in a preheated 375 Degree oven for about 6 minutes. Give them a stir and then continue baking them for about another 3 minutes or until they are golden.
