  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Drizzle melted butter over bread cubes in a large bowl; toss until butter is completely soaked into bread. Spread bread cubes onto a baking sheet. Sprinkle garlic salt evenly over the cubes.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Cool completely before storing in an airtight container.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Butter amount is my guess, so use however much you need to soak all the bread cubes.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
