#DATBREADDOUGH : Easy Peasy Crunchy Croutons Recipe

When life gives you bread. Make croutons.

Today’s WEEKLY MATTERS post will get you reacquainted with the under-appreciated, stale bread. Because we apparently waste bread on the REG.

Seriously, this recipe is a quick and easy one that magically transforms your stale bread into a delicious afternoon snack or as part of your salad.



  • 4 slices of stale bread
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter*
  • 2 tablespoons of oregano**
  • 3 crushed and finely diced garlic cloves

*Use olive oil for a vegan alternative
** Herbs are optional, we had oregano on hand, thyme is also delicious!


  1. Pre-heat the oven for 200 degrees celsius
  2. Karate chop your stale bread into squares. Cut them into similar sizes so they cook evenly, and leave the crust – that’s the tasty bit!
  3. Combine the melted butter, oregano and diced garlic into a small container.
  4. Grab a tray and line it with some baking paper.
  5. Brush the tray with some of the garlic-butter mixture.
  6. Place your stale bread onto the tray in a single layer. (No stacks on please!)
  7. Drizzle the rest of the mixture onto the bread.
  8. Chuck it in the oven for 5 minutes, toss them around and bake them for another 5 minutes!

These croutons are a tasty alternative to the red rock deli or smith’s crinkle cut chips you’ve been craving whilst also minimising your food wastage guilt.

You can even go super ~*fancy*~ and serve them mixed in a salad.
