Garlic Croutons

green salad with garlic croutons


4 tablespoons butter

1 clove garlic, minced

3 (3/4 inch thick) slices French bread, cut into cubes


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add bread cubes and toss until coated. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet and spread in an even layer.

Bake in the preheated oven, checking frequently to prevent burning, until crisp and dry, about 15 minutes. Let cool before using, 2 to 3 minutes.
