"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!"

"Good, quick croutons. Had issues gauging the quantity of 6 slices of bread for appropriate seasoning to bread ratio. My bread was small in diameter."

"The seasoning is excellent. For a different flavor, omit the basil and oregano and try dill."
