Delicious Homemade Croutons

When I was a teenager, my first official job was at a pizza restaurant. I loved working there and enjoyed learning new cooking tips.  One of my favorite things to do was to make the croutons. I have to tell you, there is nothing like a home made crouton.  They are so easy to make too.  In honor of my sister-in-law, my first post is one of her favorite snacks. Croutons!

You can do so many things to flavor them.  Ranch powder, and italian seasoning, add a great flavor.  I love just a little garlic and butter.  Leftover sub rolls, or french bread, make great croutons.

Delicious Homemade Croutons 
 1 loaf of french bread cubed (about 8 cups)
1-2 cloves of garlic chopped (i use the prepared garlic)
1 cup of butter melted 
salt to taste

Cube bread and lay on a cookie sheet in a single layer.
 Stir garlic, melted butter together, and salt together.  Drizzle over the bread.  Stir to coat and bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. I like to take them out after a few minutes and give them a good stir again, to coat them really well. Then return to the oven to finish cooking.

Yum! I never get store bought croutons because they are so hard they hurt my teeth. But these look perfect!
