Garlic Croutons

Homemade croutons. Can you even compare them to the kind you buy in the store? I’m pretty sure they’re made in some factory where they suck all goodness and flavor out so they’ll last on the store shelf.
Homemade croutons are so simple and easy, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them!
1/2 cup olive oil (or unsalted butter)
4 garlic cloves, smashed
1/2 loaf french bread, cut in 1″ cubes (about 8-10 cups)
Heat olive oil and garlic in a saute pan until it bubbles.
Remove garlic.
Lay bread cubes out on a rimmed cookie sheet in a single layer, drizzle with olive oil.
Sprinkle with salt, and toss to coat with oil.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
TIP: Store leftover french bread in the freezer (whole or pre-cubed), in zip top bags, for making croutons.
