My husband made these with my leftover homemade bread. They were so tasty! Just be sure not to soak the croutons in the olive oil, so they won't turn out soggy. Delicious!

Very, Very Good croutons, My DH made these yesterday, used a loaf of sliced garlic sour dough, Cut up the whole thing into 1/2 inch cubes and followed the recipe to a tee. They even make a delicious snack. Had them on a Baby green salad Yum. The recipe is a keeper. I have now been making these croutons for years everyone loves them. I double the recipe all of the time. Thanks again!
