Soo perfect! I love them. I added a shake of Italian Seasoning as well and used hotdog buns because I had no bread. Very easy. Will not be buying croutons ever again! Read More

Perfect. I actually used six slices of bread because I removed the crust. These were so good, I could have ate them alone as a snack! No need to buy packaged croutons anymore. These were easy and taste better!! Read More

These are great. In order to make them a bit healthier I used soft margarine and added 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder instead of 1/4 tsp. I added more because the seasoning didn't seem to get absorbed as well with the margarine as with the melted butter. I used french bread and it worked well. Thanks for a terrific recipe. Read More

These were so tasty. I did cook them five minutes longer as I like my croutons crispy and a little on the well done side. THis recipe is a keeper that I will make over and over again. I even made them for a snack and they totally satisfied that crunchy salty craving. All thumbs up! Read More
