Wonderful! I had some rather hard (old) homemade bread and didn't want to throw it away. This was a perfect way to use it up. Easy and fast too!

Wonderful! My husband doesn't normally like croutons but loved these! I substituted olive oil for the butter and sea salt for the garlic powder. I also used more parmesan cheese and sprinkled more after they were done to coat the outside.
