Croutons with Rustic Sourdough Bread and Red Pepper Infused Butter
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
- 1/2 large loaf rustic sourdough bread - cut into about 1-inch cubes (about 6 cups total)
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Melt the butter in a wok on medium heat.
Add in the garlic salt and red pepper flakes. Heat the butter for about 5 minutes, to let the red pepper flakes infuse into the butter.
Turn up the heat to medium-high. Add in the cubed bread, stirring constantly, and turning the cubed bread so each side is coated in butter.
Slowly sprinkle in the thyme, tossing the bread while doing so.
Continue to toss and turn the bread cubes about once every minute for about 15 minutes.
The croutons are done when all the sides of the bread cubes are a light golden brown.
