Homemade Butter Garlic Croutons Recipe

One of my daughter's favorite snacks are croutons. She usually has them eaten up before we get a chance to eat them on a salad! This is a super quick and inexpensive way to make your own and they taste way better than store bought croutons! It's also a great way to use up dried out, day old bread!

What you need:
10 slices Italian white bread (or any bread)
2 tbsp. butter
1 tbsp. olive oil
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cut bread into bite sized cubes. Melt butter in the microwave and then stir in the olive oil. In a large bowl combine bread and seasonings and toss with olive oil and butter mixture. Spread evenly on a cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until browned, stirring every 5 minutes. Enjoy!!
