    ForeverMama's Note:

    These croutons originally were part of a minestrone soup recipe. The soup was nothing to write home about and not a keeper but the croutons were to die for! I've doubled and quadrupled this recipe because my kids can eat these as if they were potato chips. It is truly scrumptious especially over a "good" soup or salad. This is a great way to use up stale bread.

      The title says it all!!! I made these, using several slices of a homemade sourdough bread that I had made the day before making this recipe. I let the slices sit out for several hours, to dry them out more, then followed as written for 1/2 of the recipe, until the first flipping/turning in the fry pan. They weren't evenly browned in the fry pan, so I decided to put them in the oven (since it was already on and cooking the main entree) to get a more even browning, which worked like a charm. Next time, I would just mix up the bread and garlic, oil in a bowl, then sprinkle with some sea salt and parmesan cheese and bake and turn till well browned. But, anyway you do it, so yummy!!! Thanks for sharing another great recipe!! Made for Spring 2013 "Pick A Chef" event.

      I went with Diner's suggestion and baked them instead of the pan method. They were simple to make yet delicious. I used a day old baquette.
