This was an interesting new technique for me - I'd never cubed a loaf of French bread before, and it took a little while to do. My loaf was indeed a day old, but weighed an ounce or two more than the specified pound. But after it was all done, there were lots of crumbs on the cutting board and I probably had a pound of bread cubes after all.
Even still, I was surprised how the cubes took up the whole cookie sheet, and were all piled up 2- or 3-deep.
I ran out of garlic powder while making this, so I probably had 1.5-1.75 Tbsp. in my batch.
Otherwise, I made these exactly as specified. I probably should have cooked them for another minute or two, like another reviewer did, since I like my croutons very cruncy - these were a bit soft. I thought these were pretty good; The Woman I Love had some on a salad and thought they were great. The basil was a nice thing to have here, but if I make these again I may use even more garlic powder - I love garlic.
