Croutons are a given on a salad, but there are lots of other things you can use croutons for. Sprinkle them on top of soup, chili or chowder. Crush them up and sprinkle them on a savory casserole you’re making when you put it in the oven. Use them for stuffing. Put them in your Green Bean Casserole, and crush them up slightly and add them to the fried onion you put on top. And the list goes on.

Here’s how to easily make your own Garlic Croutons.

Garlic SeasoningsHere’s the toppings I like to use. I went to a festival once and this garlic company was there selling and sampling their products and I fell in love with their garlic seasonings. I now own a few of them. This particular one, Garlic Garni, has a little bit of heat to it, but not too much. I also love their Garlic Ghetti, which doesn’t have the extra heat, but has some Parmesan Cheese in it that I love, and I also like the Lemon-Garlic seasoning one, which I will sprinkle on fish. They’re all great!

And I love everything bagels, so adding this seasonings to the croutons add even more flavor.
