Croutons have long been considered one of the best snacks for beer. They are delicious, natural, easy to prepare and inexpensive. If you still do not know how to properly prepare croutons for beer at home, then I recommend reading the proposed recipes. We will look at the options with the taste of garlic, cheese and just salty.

To make delicious croutons for beer, it is better to take the whole bread, and not cut, as the store-bought slicing is too thin. Stale bread is also suitable, as long as there is no mold on it. The optimal thickness of the slices is 0.5-1 cm. Thicker pieces take a very long time to fry and are inconveniently eaten, and thin ones burn, losing their taste.

Croutons with cheese

The taste of processed cheese is perfectly combined with beer, this recipe for croutons is liked by many gourmets. Instead of a frying pan, we’ll use an oven.


  • bread – 7 slices;
  • garlic – 7 heads;
  • cheese – 100 grams;
  • salt – to taste.


1. For each slice of bread, squeeze out a head of garlic and add salt. Garlic is only needed here for impregnation, before roasting, we will remove it.

2. Put all the slices in one large sandwich, so that they better absorb the garlic juice.

3. Leave for 5 minutes. Then the pieces in the pyramid are swapped, it is very important to do this for the first and last slices, which are soaked the worst. Leave for another 5 minutes.

4. Preheat the oven to 180-200°C.

5. Shake off the remaining garlic and salt from the slices, which may burn.

6. Cut off the top crust, and cut the slices themselves into pieces of the desired length, for example, divide them into three equal parts, and put them on a baking sheet.

7. Place the croutons in the oven. The approximate cooking time is 8-10 minutes. After 3-4 minutes, I recommend turning the slices to the other side, so they are fried better. We need to get a crisp crust, but inside the bread pulp should not dry completely, otherwise you will not get croutons, but crackers.

8. Grate the cheese and sprinkle it on the hot croutons.

9. If the cheese is poorly melted, then the croutons with cheese can be placed in the oven for 1-2 minutes.
