Homemade Croutons

about 3 cups

4 ounces bread, sliced into 3/4-inch thick slices, then cut into 3/4-inch cubes

2 Tablespoons melted butter, olive oil, or peanut oil

Kosher salt

Preheat the oven to 400° F.  Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.

Place the bread cubes in a medium bowl and drizzle with the butter or oil, tossing gently to coat the bread cubes.  Arrange the bread cubes in a single layer on the prepared baking sheet and season with kosher salt.  Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown on all sides; stirring halfway through baking.  Transfer to a plate to cool.  Store in an airtight container for up to one week.  Enjoy!
