Reviews forSeasoned Croutons
"Followed the recipe exactly as stated and they are very good! Like the other reviewers, I had to cook them longer to get the desired browning but no big deal Well worth it. Will not be having store bought croutons at our house anymore."
"These are tasty! The seasoning combination is right on, and they toasted up nicely. They tasted great on a lettuce salad with homemade ranch! I did have to toast mine a little longer than what the recipe called for, but otherwise they came out perfect!"
"The seasoning is excellent. For a different flavor, omit the basil and oregano and try dill."
"Great with the Caesar salad recipe in the same issue."
"Fast and easy !!! Taste very good !!!"
"I like that these croutons are a low-sodium alternative to packaged croutons from the grocery store."
"Even my kids loved these! Great Hit at our house and a great way to use up old bread!"
