    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


    Wow, I made these using other reviewers tweaks and they were so good, my guests all commented on them. I used 1/2 a white “stale” baguette, 4 table spoons of Parmesan, 4 tablespoons butter, 2 teaspoons olive oil, 1 tea spoon rosemary (dry) 1 teaspoon garlic powder. I melted butter added everything else then coated and cooked for 25mins! Yummy xxx  -  02 May 2018
