Biscuit Croutons

Biscuit Croutons are perfect little bites to add to a salad. We take leftover biscuits and reinvent them into something magnificent. Just a few ingredients to take something great and make it better!

Homemade Biscuits Reinvented

We love to take leftovers and reinvent them. Just like with our Cornbread Dressing Fritters. Now, it might not be common to have many leftovers in your house, but here at The Buttered Home, it is. One thing I hate more than doing dishes is food waste. Out of the four of us, there are only two that will eat leftovers. Therefore, I tend to try to find ways to re make leftovers into something special and new.

Recently, I made a big old batch of homemade biscuits. Now Biscuits are something that is not always great leftover more than just one day. So I got to thinking, how can I use these? It was simple really, just take them and use them just like you do with other breads that have long served their purpose. Make croutons!

How to make Biscuit Croutons

Simple and easy, we use 4 ingredients! Using simple ingredients is what makes this a top notch recipe. One of the great things about this is, you can use the same concept for any leftover bread! That is a win in my book. All day long!

~Ingredients~

  • 2- 4 leftover biscuits
  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

~Method~

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Cut biscuits into bite sized pieces. Spread on a sheet pan in a single layer.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil and stir around to cover all pieces. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and mix again.
  3. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown and crispy. Enjoy

Helpful tips

  • When making homemade croutons, you are not limited to just using biscuits. Use any bread that may be on the verge of being stale. That is the beauty of recipes like this one, you can modify it to fit any need.
  • Use a good bread knife when cutting your pieces. This will insure clean cuts and prevent tearing. You can find a link to purchase a good bread knife at the bottom of this post.
  • Let’s talk salt. You will often see that I use only sea salt. To me, sea salt has the best flavor and using a coarse milled sea salt is even better. When cooking or garnishing dishes, coarse sea salt is my favorite!
