bread with crusts removed, cut into cubes
We love buttery croutons, so this recipe was just right up our alley! The amount of butter could be scaled back just a little because there was still some left in the bowl when my bread cubes were plenty saturated. Next time I think I would use half garlic powder and half garlic salt because these were just a little salty for us. I had to remove the bowl of baked croutons from in front of my family for sampling or we would not have had any left for our salad! Yum!
This is exactly how I make my croutons only I use garlic powder and add only a little salt (I don't like my food overly salty and we like to control our salt intake). I also add a little dried parsley and fresh ground pepper.
I made these buttery croutons and all I can say is that these were the best! I will NEVER buy store croutons again. Very, very, easy to make. Nice and Crunchy even the next day for soup. Make sure that leftover croutons goes into an air tight container, the croutons stay nice and fresh.
