Herbed Garlic Croutons


4 tablespoon butter
2 cloves garlic; minced
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
2 cup whole wheat bread cubes

In a large skillet, heat margarine. Add seasonings. Cook for about 1 minute to soften. Stir in bread cubes and saute until browned and crisp.

Scatter on tops of soups or salads just before serving.

VARIATIONS: –

try other seasonings of your choice such as curry powder, chili powder, or thyme.

To bake, toss bread slices in melted butter or oil; then cut into cubes. Spread on ungreased baking sheet. Toast in 400 deg F oven for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden brown and crisp.

Store in tin at room temperature for 1-2 days; some of their crispness will be lost if stored in plastic container.

They may be reheated and crisped in 350øF oven for 5 minutes.
