"Have you ever wondered what to do with old extra hamburger buns? Don't throw them away! Turn them into yummy croutons! These are quite tasty, you won't regret making them! This can cater to whatever kind of meal you have. If you want, you can sprinkle Parmesan cheese over them before baking, too."

olive oil, or as needed
hamburger buns, cut into 1-inch cubes
salt to taste
coarsely ground black pepper to taste
I do bake mine a little longer--it really depends on how quickly the buns brown up. If you increase the spices and run the baked hamburger buns through the food processor to a fine consistancy, these will also make great "italian" bread crumbs--way better than the processed brands. THIS CAN BE FROZEN.
This is awesome! I have done this before but this mixture of spices are very delicious!
Thank you so much for this idea, I think it would be great for any old bread, and I have some. I will try this with some Whole Wheat rolls that I had leftover.
Doubled the spices and used leftover Fabulous French Loaves. Really tasty and great on my salad.
Great way to get rid of all those stupid hamburger buns my husband insists on buying (just in case) - which are filling up my freezer.
Delicious! I actually used some leftover hot dog buns, but same thing, lol. I used Italian seasoning in place of the oregano, thyme and basil. These needed to bake a little longer than called for, but it was no big issue. These had really great flavor. Great use of leftover buns...I will be making these again, for sure~YUM! Thanks for sharing. ;)
