  2. Mix butter, Parmesan cheese, oregano, thyme, garlic powder, and salt together in a large, flat-bottomed bowl; add bread cubes and turn with a spatula to coat. Spread coated bread cubes onto a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool croutons completely before storing in an airtight container.

It was so good. Quick and easy! Perfect for summer salads!

Used Kaiser rolls. Did not use any salt - otherwise as written. They are not heavily seasoned so they're light and tasteful. All 3 of us (ladies) found them to be delightful.

OMG! The best croutons ever! Very easy! They freeze well until you pull some out! Love them!
