Say hello to your new essential everything topper:
Cheezy Garlic Croutons.
These salty, golden brown, crispy hunks of bread are crunchy on the outside and slightly chewy on the inside, generously saturated with a cheezy coating, customizably garlicky, and honestly just really addicting and hard not to eat right off the pan. I don’t really know how else to describe how good they are except to tell you that when I made these with our team, we kind of all just stood around eating them fresh out of the oven like they were a meal in and of itself. And that wasn’t wrong of us.
But oh, hey, did you catch that? I’m acting casual here, but cheezy = cheez = not real cheese! That’s right, these babies are fully vegan and dairy free. Nutritional yeast – something I rarely buy – is popping in for a quick and really delicious hello. And also making a strong case for its permanent place in my pantry.
Okay. Can we just take a closer look at those again?
YUM CITY. And so stupidly easy!
First: mix up your “coating” of olive oil, nutritional yeast, salt, garlic powder.
Next, toss the bread in there. I use my hands to really massage it into the bread because these are my priorities in life.
