I will give this 5 stars because as written, I'm sure it will be very good. However, I only had stale sandwich bread on hand (whole wheat) and the garlic in a jar (which I don't really like) and some of the bread cubes were really soggy and even after 45, yes 45, minutes of baking (and careful watching, and turning) these pieces are still not 100% crunchy but I'm giving up because I don't want the other ones to burn. I had to douse these in sea salt, italian seasoning and fresh cracked black pepper because all the garlic burned off. I wish I had some parmesan cheese which might've made them better. They are ok, but not super. Still too sweet and bready. I wanted salty, garlicky and crunchy. Oh well. Like I said, I'm sure if I had done this recipe to the letter it would've been better! I think I might try olive oil next time. I love it, and I think it wouldn't make my bread really soggy like the butter did. I think you would get the best flavour if you sauteed the garlic and any herbs in the oil then strained it and mixed it with the bread with sea salt and fresh ground pepper. Also I think the French bread (or any crusty bread) is a must because my good old bagged sandwich bread is just too soft and smushy and soaks up the butter and stays soggy. But that's just my opinion :) Will definitely try this again!
