Homemade Croutons

These are so easy.  They are really worth making as they come out light and full of flavour.  Great in a salad or on soup but we even eat them as a snack!

Here's what you'll need:
(printable recipe)

a few slices of day old bread cut into cubes
about 1/4 cup of butter
2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tbsp. garlic seasoning ( I use Club House Garlic Plus)

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  Place bread cubes on baking sheet and bake about 10 minutes or until they start to lightly brown.  Melt butter and olive oil in frying pan until bubbly and add garlic powder and garlic seasoning; then toss in toasted bread cubes.  Toss to coat and place on paper towel lined plate to cool.

Note:  I have used all different breads including regular and whole wheat sliced bread.  But I do prefer slicing my own with breads such as Italian, French, Sourdough or my favourite Calabrese from the bakery section of the supermarket.
