Such croutons can be prepared very quickly, so to speak, in a hurry.
If you often have a loaf, then it can be easily disposed of by preparing such delicious croutons. From a weathered loaf they are obtained even better than from fresh.
Some add sugar directly to the milk mixture, but I don’t like to do this, since sugar in cold milk does not mix well and then most of it remains at the bottom of the bowl and the croutons are slightly sweet. But on top of them you can sprinkle sugar in the forehead in quantity.
These croutons can be served in addition to jam, honey or jam.
If you do not like the option with the addition of sugar, then you can cook them in a salty version. To do this, add a little salt to the milk mixture.
With the preparation of these croutons there will be no difficulties even for a novice cook or teenager.
Cook with pleasure! Very tasty!
If, after cooking, the egg-milk mixture remains, it can be fried like an omelet.
The recipe allows you to experiment: add chopped herbs, grated cheese, garlic, etc.

How to cook delicious bread croutons in a pan with chicken egg and milk - secrets and subtleties
- For cooking, it is recommended to use yesterday's (slightly stiffened) bread or loaf. Firstly, it cuts better and crumbles less. Secondly, it will be much better cooked inside. The middle of fresh bread after roasting can be wet and sticky. Hard bread croutons are soft and evenly cooked, with a delicious crispy crust.
- Spread croutons, dipped in an egg-milk mixture, must be in a pan with well-heated oil - then they will quickly set.
- For frying, you can use both vegetable (deodorized) and butter. In the second version, croutons need to be fried at a lower temperature and a little longer, but they will acquire a soft creamy taste and aroma.
- Before serving, place the finished dish on a paper towel to absorb excess fat.
- Cook croutons in a pan is necessary over medium heat. If the heat is too low, the bread drinks a lot of oil, and the dish turns out to be too high-calorie, "heavy" for the stomach.
- Vanilla (or vanillin, vanilla extract, natural vanilla) can be added to ordinary sugar in the preparation of sweet croutons. This will give the dessert an unmatched flavor.
- Serve dessert croutons with ice cream, fresh fruits, berries, jam, jam, sweet sauces. Fresh or pickled vegetables, mushrooms, bacon fried to a crunch are perfect for unsweetened, snack, version of the dish.

In the end, I want to give a couple of tips so that your homemade croutons with egg and milk turn out to be tasty the first time:
- To prepare croutons, take bread that is slightly dried,
- For recipes, not only a loaf, but any other bakery products,
- Put croutons only in a frying pan heated with vegetable oil, otherwise the taste of the finished dish will be completely different from the one you are counting on,
- After frying, put croutons on a paper towel, thereby allowing excess fat to drain.
Step by step recipe
1. Add 1 tablespoon to the egg. sugar without a hill (since we need a pinch of sugar a little later).
2. Cut the slices of the loaf in half.
3. Heat the pan, add vegetable oil.
4. Dip each slice in an egg and place in a pan.
5. Fry over low heat until golden brown.
6. Immediately when you turn the croutons from one side to the other, sprinkle the fried side with a pinch of sugar.
Fry the other side until golden brown.
7. Hot and sweet croutons are ready.
They are delicious both hot and cold.
What will be needed for cooking:
- loaf, rolls, white bread - about 400 g,
- cow's milk - 100 ml,
- perfect eggs (chicken) - 3 pcs.,
- granulated sugar - 1 tbsp. l with a small slide + for sprinkling,
- vanilla sugar - 1-1.5 tsp. (taste),
- You can also use cinnamon, cardamom, citrus zest and other additives as desired.
How to do:
- In this recipe you can use any bread, loaf or rolls of not the first freshness. Leftovers that have not been eaten the day before, very simply turn into a hill of golden, non-greasy, tender croutons. Cut yesterday’s or even yesterday’s bread into slices. The thickness of the pieces can be adjusted as you wish. But for the middle to be well baked, it should be within 2-3 cm, not thicker. If cut too thin, croutons will turn out tough. And so they turn out soft inside and crispy outside.
Prepare a mixture for impregnation. To do this, break eggs into a deep container. Add vanilla and plain sugar. You do not need to put a lot, because granulated sugar, added in excess, will burn during baking, an unpleasant bitter taste of burnt caramel will appear. Vanilla sugar can be replaced with vanilla, or natural vanilla (seeds, extract). Beat eggs with a fork until smooth and lightly splendid.
Now pour in the milk. It does not need much, the mass should remain quite thick, enveloping. Mix.
Dip each piece of bread in a mixture of milk, sugar and eggs, and then put on a baking sheet or heat-resistant form, covered with parchment for baking. Sprinkle the top with sugar to form a crispy caramel.
Preheat the oven to 180-200 degrees (depending on the "working" temperature and other features of the oven), put in it a baking sheet with future croutons, at an average level. Bake for about 7-12 minutes, until golden brown, do not need to be deep fried.
The composition of the dish:
- bread - half a loaf of gray or black bread,
- garlic - 1 clove,
- chicken eggs - 3 pcs. (category СО),
- table salt (fine grinding) - on the tip of a knife,
- milk - 100-150 ml,
- ground pepper mixture (or only black) - a pinch (to taste),
- sunflower oil, without additives and odor - 100-150 ml,
- fresh or dried herbs - a few pinches.
How to cook:
- Cut the bread into thin slices, the optimal thickness is about 2 cm. If there is slightly dried bread, then it is better to use it.
- Prepare a deep dish into which to crush a medium-sized clove of garlic with a press. Add eggs there, pour some milk. You can focus on the amount indicated in the recipe, or you can add it to the eye: the egg-milk mass should not be too liquid, otherwise the rosy crust will not work.
Season with freshly ground pepper, put salt and herbs. Beat thoroughly with a fork or whisk.
Pour oil into a pan. To fry croutons, it will require quite a lot, because bread “likes” to absorb excess fluid. But if you heat the fat well, a crust will quickly form on the surface of the slices, which will prevent the bread crumb from absorbing too much oil. Each slice put in eggs, whipped with milk, hold in a mixture for 10-15 seconds, send to a heated frying pan.
