Cornbread Croutons recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Sweetly crisp and slightly chewy croutons made from some of the best cornbread I’ve ever had. I imagine these croutons would work with almost any leftover cornbread.

However, the Homesteader Cornbread is truly the most moist cornbread imaginable. As a result, the croutons remain chewy instead of simply drying out in the oven.

Such a simple idea and yet it added a great element to our meal. The kids went crazy over the croutons on their chili and I really liked the additional texture and sweetness with the beans. I am certain I’ll be making croutons again, the next time I make cornbread.

Cornbread Croutons


  • All the cornbread you want to use


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Slice the cornbread into small pieces; I tried to get mine about 3/4" in size. Spread across a baking sheet in a single layer and then toast in the oven until the pieces are lightly browned and crisp on the edges. This took almost half an hour for me. I checked after 15 minutes, expecting it to be finished and the bread was still soft. Check every 5 minutes or so after that, to make sure the bread isn't burning or drying out too much.
  • Let the croutons cool completely before storing in an airtight container until ready to use. Enjoy!

    I am really disappointed. Your recipe clearly states “cornbread croutons”, BUT there is NO recipe for the cornbread. What’s with that! I have never been on your website before, but if this is your shortcut, unfortunately I will not return. I am looking for a really moist cornbread to make cornbread croutons. Anyone can throw something in the oven. Come on. Put more work into your website!!!
