How To Make Ruby Tuesday Croutons

If you’ve ever been to Ruby Tuesday and enjoyed one of their delicious salads, you’ve probably fallen in love with their crunchy and flavorful croutons. A perfect salad isn’t complete without a handful of these golden little gems, and today, we’re going to learn how to make them at home!


  • 4 cups of cubed day-old bread
  • 1/4 cup of melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of dried parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground black pepper


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, garlic powder, onion powder, dried parsley, salt, and black pepper. Mix well to create a seasoned butter mixture.

  3. Add the cubed bread to the seasoned butter mixture. Toss gently to coat all the bread pieces in seasoning.

  4. Spread the seasoned bread cubes on a baking sheet in a single layer. Make sure they are not overlapping, so they can crisp up evenly.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes or until the croutons are golden brown and crispy. Be sure to flip the croutons halfway through the baking time to ensure even browning.

  6. Remove the croutons from the oven and let them cool completely before using them in your salad or storing them in an airtight container.

Quick Tips:

  • Day-old bread works best for croutons, as it will absorb the seasoning better and give a crispier texture.
  • You can use any type of bread for this recipe, such as white, whole wheat, or even gluten-free bread.
  • Feel free to customize the seasoning mix by adding your favorite herbs and spices.
  • Store the croutons in an airtight container in a cool, dry place for up to two weeks.
