These were very good, but not quite as garlicy as I had hoped. The bread I used was very fresh, so I toasted the slices first to help cut into cubes. I think I will try fresh herbs next time. Thanks for posting.

Super! Very good and easy, had leftover white and wheat bread from the bread machine so cut it thick in cubes! I was snacking on these, the heck with the salad/soup! TY Evelyn for this one!
