A very good, simple crouton. I melted the butter and put the cubes and seasonings in a bag, poured the butter over top and shook to coat. Toasted in the oven after seasoning. Came out great and ...

Very good croutons. I add extra parmesan.

Excellent recipe, will be my go to. Next time I will cut salt to 1/2 tsp. Way too salty for me and I used garlic powder. Otherwise easy perfect.

Best croutons ever! I don't think I will ever buy the bagged/boxed again. So simple!
