    I agree with a previous reviewer, why buy store made croutons again!!! I love the flavor of the mixture, although, I did leave out the basil and just used with the garlic & onion powders. I think next time I would make twice the amount of butter/oil mixture, as I want more of a coating on the cubes, but that is a personal (more fattening, lol) preference. Thanks so much for sharing a great recipe and a money saving recipe. Congrats again on your win in the Football Pool.

    I had four left over buttermilk biscuits from breakfast the day before that I used in place of the bread. Split them and cubed them the same way and they turned out fantastic! They never made it to the top of a salad, they were devoured as if they were a bag of a favorite bag of chips.

    Nice croutons! I made these as directed but added more garlic powder - I love garlic-y croutons. Simple and good. Congrats again on your Football win, Sherrybeth!

    These are so much better than the hard little croutons you buy at the store. I loved the seasoning on these, and the crispiness was just right. They were crispy without being dried out and hard. It's a great way to use up bread that has been sitting around for a few days. I will never buy croutons at the store again. Thanks for a great recipe, Sherrybeth.
