Default I make my own Croutons

Take older bread, slice into 1" squares on a plate, put Parkay Margarine patties on top and sprinkle with Italian Seasoning and microwave for 2 minutes.
Stir and let cool a little, then mic again as needed to dry out to crunchy.
Always seem to have leftover bread anyway and they turn out great!

I make my own as well. Toast the bread in the oven. Remove from oven and cut into squares. I use 1 stick of real butter, room temperature with crushed garlic and Tony’s Chacherie’s. Mix it together then coat each square with the mixture. Bake until crispy. My son and daughter in law eat them straight from the container.

Croutons? Nah but I do a mean Melba toast.

Let dry out about half way (not completely dried out) slice to about 1/4” to 1/3” thick, lay out on sheet tray, toast in oven until light brown, brush with clarified butter, season with garlic, koshers salt and parm cheese.
Atlernate: Spread a thin layer of basil paste on toast before the parm.

Pop back in the over until the cheese starts to brown.
Pull and let cool.
