Instructions Checklist

  • 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.

  • 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.

This is exactly how I make my croutons only I use garlic powder and add only a little salt (I don't like my food overly salty and we like to control our salt intake). I also add a little dried parsley and fresh ground pepper. Read More

We love buttery croutons so this recipe was just right up our alley! The amount of butter could be scaled back just a little because there was still some left in the bowl when my bread cubes were plenty saturated. Next time I think I would use half garlic powder and half garlic salt because these were just a little salty for us. I had to remove the bowl of baked croutons from in front of my family for sampling or we would not have had any left for our salad! Yum! Read More

Used loaf of french bread added minced garlic to butter as it melted. Then coated bread crumbs in bowl w/ butter mixture. Did not add salt as butter is salted and we don't need the extra sodium. After spreading on pan sprinkled Parmesan /herb mix from Papa Murphys on it. Baked 300 and turned every few minutes until crispy. Will never use store bought again. My grandchildren loved these as snacks. Which is better than candy! Read More

These are so incredibly easy and made a huge difference in my salad this evening. I think I will begin to buy a loaf of french bread each week and make a batch of these croutons for soups and salads. So economical and the possibilities are endless with different bread types oils and seasonings. Read More
