I love homemade croutons and they are so simple to make. They really jazz up an ordinary green salad.
8 ounces French Bread Loaf -- cut in cubes
1/2 cup margarine or butter -- melted
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Heat oven to 300F degrees. Spread cubes on cookie sheet. In small bowl, combine melted margarine and garlic powder; mix well. Drizzle margarine mixture over cubes; toss to coat. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 300F degrees for 30-45 minutes or until dry, crisp and golden brown, stirring occasionally.
