    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    You will never purchase store bought croutons again after making these! make a double batch and store in the fridge or freeze them, use in salads or soups, for easier slicing make certain to use stale bread, or place your bread in the fridge overnight, for extreme garlic flavor use fresh finely minced garlic and increase to 2 tablespoons, to infuse the flavor into the butter allow the melted butter/garlic mixture to sit for 30 minutes or more at room temperature before brushing on the bread

      Made these with Kittencal's Caesar salad, Julia Child's Steak au Poivre and baked potatoes. <br/>Unbelievably easy to make and so yummy!<br/>Update:<br/>I have been using this recipe to make homemade garlic bread to accompany lasagne or pasta by brushing the butter mixture onto bread and baking as instructed. So much better than the frozen, store-bought variety. To gild the lily add mozzarella, parmesan, &/or provolone.
