Croutons (french Recipe)


8 Servings
1/3 c butter
3 cloves garlic,finely minced
2 c bread cubes
Black pepper

Heat oven to 400F. Lightly brown the diced garlic in the butter. Add cubed bread. (It works better if it is a little old, but if you only have fresh, just be more gentle). Toss well, but gently to coat the bread with the butter. Set in oven and roast for about 7 minutes, then stir well and roast again for about 7 minutes more. When bread has taken on a golden color, remove and salt and pepper to taste. Spread out on a large platter to cool. Bread will become crunchy as it sits.
