These are the absolutely BEST croutons I have ever tried! This recipe includes a lot of spices, but the blend is so yummy!! It is a recipe from my university's coffee house. Scatter on salads or soups or just enjoy for snacking! =)

Much better than croutons sold in the grocery store--these really are the best!! The herb mixture is incredible; I would've never thought of combining all of them, but they're perfect together! My only changes were to halve the servings (to 3 cups), and use mostly olive oil in place of the butter (I used 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of melted butter). Oh, and I also used whole grain bread for the bread cubes. Totally delicious!! Those store-bought croutons are history--I'm making these from now on! Thanks so much for a great recipe, Chef 441346!!
