How to Make Gluten-Free Breadcrumbs Croutons, and Bread Cubes

It’s easy to make gluten-free bread cubes for stuffing, croutons for a garnish, or making breadcrumbs for use in recipes. The entire process of making them takes very little time, and they are a much better option to add flavor and texture than the store-bought variety.

Gluten-Free Food: Gluten-Free Bread Cubes, Croutons & Breadcrumbs

To begin the process, you will be drying gluten-free bread.

If you’re like me and don’t particularly care for eating bread crusts or whenever you have a few extra slices of GF-bread sitting around, and you know that you won eat it before it gets stale – just, cube ‘em and bake ‘em up for using later!

Pressed for time?

I’ve found that keeping a large zipper bag for collecting bread crusts and slices in my freezer is the perfect solution. And, don’t be afraid to add different types of GF-bread to your bag (white, dark, French, mock rye, baguettes, etc.); the combination of different bread types will add flavor and texture to the cubes or crumbs you make.

When the bag is full, defrost the bread, and you’re ready to make cubes for stuffing, croutons, or crumbs for whatever you need.

Always have just what you need.

Do you need a few croutons for a salad or slices for making into breadcrumbs for a recipe? Pull out just what you’ll need from your freezer, defrost, cube ‘em, season, and you’re ready to go.

Never have any leftover bread?

You can always buy a loaf or two the next time you’re at the grocery store and use it for this recipe.

Equipment

  • Sharpe knife
  • oven
  • Food processor or rolling pin

Ingredients
 
 

Shop the G-FreeDeliciously Wildtree Store!Wildtree.com/gfreedeliciously!

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 225-degrees
  • Cube the bread, spread it out onto a large cookie or baking sheet.
  • Drizzle with olive oil (a couple of turns around the sheet should do it).
  • Season with salt and pepper and toss lightly.
  • Add additional seasonings to taste if desired (onion powder, garlic powder, parsley, sage, etc.).
  • Bake until the bread is lightly toasted and completely dried out. Stir occasionally to toast the cubes evenly.
  • Cool thoroughly and save in heavy zipper bags or a tight-sealing container.
  • Store cubes in the refrigerator for up to one month, or in the freezer for up to three months.

Recipe Notes

To Make Cubes for Stuffing - Add powdered sage, onion powder, and parsley to taste in step number four, and toss lightly before baking. Please note that sage is a strong spice. Add it sparingly, smelling and even tasting a few cubes as you go to make sure you are flavoring cubes that you’ll want to use and that won’t be over-seasoned.
To Make Croutons - Add powdered garlic, onion powder, and parsley to taste in step number four, and toss lightly before baking.
To Make Breadcrumbs - Use toasted cubes plain, or season with additional dried herbs and spices to your liking.
Place the cubes of bread into the food processor or blender jar—pulse to your desired crumb size, approximately the size of rice grains. For the best results, add the cubes in small batches.
Optional method - If you prefer to make breadcrumbs manually, place the dry cubes in a zipper bag, press to get the air out, and seal; then smash and roll the contents with a rolling pin to break the cubes into crumbs.

Take a peek at the behind
G-Free Deliciously

Being creative, cooking, fresh veggies, the violin, decorating for holidays, sewing, hand-quilting, cowgirl boots, country music, fresh herbs in pots, blowing dandelions to the wind, walking barefoot in the grass, hanging out with eclectic interesting people, reading, writing, warm lazy summer days, and yoga!

Gluten, cilantro, mixed vegetables (the frozen kind I grew up with), negativism, rudeness, narcissism, overstaying a welcome,
not helping out, liars, promiscuity, cockiness, know-it-alls, being overly-dramatic, goal-less-ness, poor hygiene, chauvinism, lacking a sense of humor, excessive competitiveness, Laziness, horrifying spellers, people-bashing, criticism and mockery of others and their beliefs, flakiness (because flaky people are really unappealing), more swagger than substance, people who constantly manage others (those folks who think they have all the answers…)

Lambrusco, my iPad, popcorn suppers, dark chocolate, cookbooks, Almond-Rocca, historical romances, sun-bathing, weekend coffee with a good book in bed, PBS cooking shows, romantic comedies, cozy sweaters, fuzzy socks, and fragrant bubble baths with soft music and wine…

Say please and thank you, LAUGH, Pray often, ENCOURAGE others, Be KIND, HONEST, HAPPY, Keep your PROMISES, Be GRATEFUL, Wash your hands, FORGIVE yourself and others, LISTEN, Have FAITH, Be CONFIDENT, Honor your parents, CHERISH your children and grandchildren, TREASURE your family, ABIDE in GOD’s love, Be POLITE, Guard your HEART, SEEK your purpose, FEED your mind, body and soul, Be HOPEFUL, Resist temptation, Lay your burdens down, TRUST your gut, CONNECT with nature, Know that GOD made you perfect just the way you are, SERVE others, LIVE to love, Be COURAGEOUS, Shine bright, OPEN your mind, RESPECT differences, HONOR your inner hunger, SING loud, Be PROUD of who you are, Practice PATIENCE, Never give up, WEATHER the storms of life, Say I love you, LOVE one another

  • I’ve traveled to 32 states in the USA where I’ve enjoyed the food, history, people and the local culture while visiting.
  • Among the states, I’ve lived in are Arizona, California, Michigan, and Wisconsin.
  • My favorite island is Maui.
  • I’ve also been to Canada and Mexico.
  • I rode horses as a kid, and barrel-raced.
  • I broke my neck when I was 18 and went to senior prom in a neck brace.
  • As a little girl, I grew up living next door to my grandma and grandpa on a small lake in rural southern Michigan.
  • The first thing I learned to cook was pancakes.
  • The craziest thing I ever made was mint-flavored green cupcakes when I was 13. My family didn’t like them much…
