Make your own delicious, fresh gluten-free croutons and your soups and salads will thank you! A cardinal rule of gluten-free cooking- never throw away day-old gluten-free bread.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 4 cups cubed gluten-free bread
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon GF Trocomare® seasoned salt
  • 1 teaspoon GF garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon GF onion powder


Preheat oven to 275°
  1. Cube gluten-free into 1/2-inch cubes and place them in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Pour olive oil into a small bowl and add seasonings. Stir to mix.
  3. Pour seasoned olive oil over the bread cubes and stir to thoroughly coat bread.
  4. Line a large baking sheet pan with parchment paper and spread bread cubes in one, even layer on the pan.
  5. Bake for about one hour, or until the bread cubes are golden brown and dry.
  6. Turn off oven and leave croutons in oven for another 1/2 hour.
  7. Cool and eat, or store in an air-tight container.

Gluten free croutons store well in the freezer. Make a double batch for convenience!

Herbal breads make especially savory GF croutons. I used day-old Walnut Rosemary Gluten Free Artisan Bread to make the croutons pictured.

Reminder: Always make sure your work surfaces, utensils, pans and tools are free of gluten. Always read product labels. Manufacturers can change product formulations without notice. When in doubt, do not buy or use a product before contacting the manufacturer for verification that the product is free of gluten.

Very good!, Member RachBMommy

Really like this recipe...a quick and simple way for me to make croutons for my G free family. I like to use them in a couple of casserole dishes. However, the first time I made them I used the time at the bottom of the recipe (it says to bake for about one hour) and they were too crispy. The next time I used the time at the top of the recipe (it says 30 minutes) and they turned out beautifully. Thank you.
