Sourdough Baguette Croutons

  • 2 cups sliced sourdough bread, I used about 3/4th of a loaf Sliced into 1/2 inch cubes. Any size you prefer is fine, I often slice mine into 1 inch cubes. Stale leftover bread works great.
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon Everything But the Bagel Seasoning or your favorite seasoning
  • salt and pepper to taste

Ezekiel Bread or Sandwich Bread Croutons


  • If you are using a sourdough bread loaf, you will want to use a serrated bread knife to slice the bread.
  • Drizzle or spray the sliced bread with olive oil. Season with the seasonings. If you find that seasonings aren't sticking try a little more oil.
  • Place the sliced bread on the air fryer basket.
  • Air fry for 5 minutes on 370 degrees. Open and flip/shake the croutons.
  • Air fry for an additional 2-3 minutes.




Feel free to get creative with your bread and spice selection! You can use Texas Toast, asiago cheese loafs, and so much more!
When using sourdough bread, stale bread will work best. I rarely just have sourdough bread on hand, but if you do and have leftovers, then make croutons!
I got a loaf of sourdough and kept it sealed at room temperature for a couple of days and then used it to make croutons.
If you are looking for a flourless bread option that is also healthier, Ezekiel bread works great. You can use whole grain bread, too. I found that both fresh or stale sandwich bread will work fine.
