excellent recipe! Not quite like Outback though! I know I sound like Paula Deen right now, but they need more butter. I know the recipe already has a ton, but they are just really good, normal croutons right now, not quite the texture of Outback. I cut the recipe in half (because who has a cookie sheet to hold 2 loaves of bread?!). I also used 2 bowls and divided up the butter mixture evenly. It was much easier to coat the croutons when not working with such a large amount. Also very important to spread them onto the cookie sheet in one layer so none are overlapping. I will for sure be making these again, just with more butter - then I will hit the treadmill! :)
