If you run the baked croutons through the food processor to a fine consistancy these will also make great "italian" bread crumbs--way better than the processed brands. THIS CAN BE FROZEN. You can also use leftover hamburger or hot dog buns and get the same result. Read More

I made a scaled down version of these and they came out very good. Since oregano can have a strong taste I'd caution you to perhaps start with going a little short on that herb--you can always add but it's harder to take away! Cooking time could vary depending on how dry your bread is to start with. I took mine out of the oven when they were nicely golden brown but they weren't quite crunchy yet. I baked them a little more and they almost got too done. I liked the process of how to toss the bread cubes in the butter solution. Thanks for adding so much flavor to our salad! Read More

Wonderful!! I made no changes and the one review is right on where she used minced garlic instead of the powder but either way works. I am a garlic lover so next time will probably use the minced garlic instead of the powder. I highly recommend this recipe for croutons. Read More

Tasty and crunchy. Used last of homemade bread and followed recipe using home grown herbs. These were wonderful on the French onion soup recipe I made recently. And a few left for my next salad. One could cut down on butter and still have good flavor. Read More

The best croutons I've ever had! The only thing I changed: minced a garlic clove instead of using powder. Will be using this recipe for a long time! Read More

Yum! I've made these several times and found in a pinch that olive oil works great too in place or added with the butter! Read More

I made mine with leftover soft pretzel pieces I made from another recipe. The croutons turned out perfect! I doubt I'll ever pay for croutons again:-) Read More
