1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon crushed garlic
3 large, thick slices of high quality bread (I prefer French, Italian or sourdough), cut into 1/2 inch cubes
These deliciously light croutons are the perfect garnish for a hearty bowl of soup or chowder. Try tossing them in a salad for a bit of extra crunch!
Heat butter and oil in skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for one minutes, stirring constantly. Add bread cubes and cook, tossing gently with a rubber spatula so all sides of the bread brown lightly. Remove from heat to a paper towel-lined plate and salt to taste.
