About this recipe: A very simple recipe, these croutons are good for a Caesar salad or any crisp green salad. Also nice to serve atop a bowl of soup.

Something else. Wow, these are GOOD!! I used regular white loaf bread. I melted my butter in the microwave and used parmesan cheese and ground black pepper. I cut my baking time down to about 20 minutes and they were perfect! I made these to go along with my Caesar Salad, also from this site. I just put my bread cubes in a large plastic container and poured the butter mixture over and tossed well. No need to dirty a frying pan - 24 Jul 2008


Altered ingredient amounts. These are wonderful, except they are definitely not good for you. I will have to limit how many of these I make for myself. I make the following changes: I use 1 knob butter and 3 tablespoon olive oil, add 4 teaspoon parmesan cheese and add 1 teaspoon italian herbs. I will be sure to add these to my regular rotation. - 24 Jul 2008


Yum so easy to make. Will pop them in the freezer and use on my homemade soups or in salads. Easy to tweak too. X - 23 Jan 2015
