The Best Ever Homemade Croutons



I love croutons! They are a neccesity anytime I make a salad. I forgot to buy some on my last trip to the store, so I decided to make my own for our salads. These are so much better than store bought croutons and so much more economical. I used leftover Italian Bread from Sunday's dinner, so that didn't go to waste. They were quick and easy too!

Here's the recipe:

Italian Salad Croutons

1/4 cup butter , melted
1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
5 slices white bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes


In a large bowl, combine the butter, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Add bread cubes and toss to coat. Arrange in a single layer on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 325 degrees F for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

Enjoy!

Peace and blessings,

Lisa
