Came up with these when serving my Potato-Leek-Mushroom Soup this weekend. Yum! Would be great over salad as well.

THANK YOU! I had never made croutons before but SO just loves them so this weekend I did! I used this loaf of hard french bread (it was too hard for regular bread, so this was great, I didn't waste it)! I (of course) increased the garlic to 4 cloves and sprinkeled some parmesean cheese in the mix. It's too hot here for soup right now, so I'll try that next fall! Thank you again!
