Ingredients

Instructions

  • Add the bacon grease to a cast iron skillet over medium heat.
  • Once hot, add the bread cubes and all remaining ingredients. Gently stir to coat.
  • Cook until the bread is golden and crispy, about 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Cool, and use any way you’d use croutons.

Notes

  • 1 slice of keto bread equals 1/2 cup of cubed bread. 
  • Switch up the flavor profile by adding different spices! Smoked paprika is delicious.
  • If you don’t eat pork, you can use beef bacon grease like Faith does for this recipe! Or you could use olive oil for a vegetarian version.
  • Store keto croutons in a glass jar in the fridge for up to 2 weeks.
