Hamburger Bun Croutons


breadcrumbs.jpgI bought some sandwich buns the other day that were just a bit too dry for my liking. I used this recipe to turn lemons into lemonade . . . or buns into croutons. Really tasty and crisp — they were perfect to add to the stuffing for my Marinated Portabello Mushrooms. Keep them in an airtight container for salads, soups or casseroles.



  • olive oil, or as needed
  • 4 hamburger buns, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground thyme
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried basil
  • salt to taste
  • coarsely ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Drizzle olive oil over hamburger bun cubs in a large bowl; toss to coat. Spread cubes onto a baking sheet. Sprinkle garlic powder, oregano, thyme, basil, salt, and black pepper over the cubes.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until brown and crispy, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool completely before storing.

I am a blogger who would rather talk than write. I enjoy traveling, family time, friends and food/fine dining. I have made some real efforts in the kitchen lately, and I blog in order to document and motivate myself to: 1.) fully use all of the fresh ingredients in my kitchen and 2.) cook healthy, creative meals.
