This was great! Makes 6 servings??? Maybe if you're eating them as a snack, but it goes a LONG ways as salad croutons. I found it easier to make 1/2 batch at a time, and to first put the bread cubes in a large bowl and pour the oil (I substituted 1/4 cup olive oil & 1/4 cup melted margarine) over the cubes and then add the seasoning and mix well, before placing them on the baking pan. Will definately add this to my list of favorites!

These are great. I used Olive Oil and parmesan cheese and my husband and I ate them like there was no tomorrow. I have also added a tablespoon of butter to the olive oil, added the basil and chopped garlic and simmered on low heat for about 10 minutes to really get the flavors infused. We loved it! We will never buy store croutons again unless we absolutely have to.

Yummy is definitely the word to describe these! I'll NEVER ever go back to store bought again! I had a loaf of Italian bread that was going stale and this recipe was perfect for it. I used EVOO instead of veg. oil and tossed them instead of just drizzling the mixture over top. I baked them at 375 instead of 400 and watched them carefully so they didn't burn. I turned them during cooking. So good, I made a second batch and experimented with using a packet of Good Seasons Italian Salad dressing mix plus some minced garlic along with the olive oil. I think you can mix up just about any combination of herbs, spices, and add in some grated cheese and it'll turn out great! A perfect add-in to salads, soups, casseroles - whatever you can think of...
