I mentioned in my French bread post that I had turned a good portion of my bread into croutons. I always forget how much better homemade croutons really are and they seriously take no effort at all. If you have time to slice bread, you can make croutons!
With less than a week to go before kid #2 pops into our lives, I’ve been trying to clean out the kitchen so I found myself without garlic when I went to make these. I used garlic powder which turned out good but if you have the fresh stuff, use that instead.
- 3 cups cubed French bread
- 4 tablespoons butter
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder (or 1-2 cloves fresh garlic, minced)
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Melt butter in a large saucepan. Stir in garlic powder (or fresh garlic). Toss cubed bread in butter mixture and spread out on greased baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, stir gently, and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes or until golden brown and dried out.
