Here's a recipe for making Denmark Rugbrødscroutons:


  • 4 slices of Danish rugbrød (rye bread), preferably slightly stale
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried herbs such as thyme, rosemary, or oregano (optional)


1- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it with oil.

2- Cut the slices of rugbrød into small cubes, about 1/2 to 1 inch in size. You can remove the crust if preferred, but leaving it on adds a rustic texture.

3- In a large bowl, toss the rugbrød cubes with olive oil or melted butter until evenly coated.

4- Season the cubes with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and dried herbs if using. Toss again to distribute the seasonings evenly.

5- Spread the seasoned rugbrød cubes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet.

6- Bake in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the croutons are golden brown and crispy, stirring halfway through to ensure even baking.

7- Once the croutons are done, remove them from the oven and let them cool completely on the baking sheet. They will continue to crisp up as they cool.

8- Once cooled, store the rugbrødscroutons in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week. Enjoy them as a crunchy topping for soups, salads, or as a tasty snack on their own!

These homemade Denmark Rugbrødscroutons are sure to add a delicious Scandinavian flair to your favorite dishes. Adjust the seasoning according to your taste preferences, and feel free to experiment with different herbs and spices for a personalized touch.
