To prepare croutons, start by slicing your french bread in half (lengthwise).
Butter both halves & sprinkle with about 1 tsp of the garlic powder.
Cut french bread into cubes in place into large bowl.
Combine in small bowl: remaining garlic pwd, paprika, Mrs Dash, salt & pepper.
Drizzle olive oil over bread cubes and sprinkle with spice mixture. Mix well (I use my hands, but feel free to use a spoon).
Place seasoned cubes on baking sheet.
Cook croutons in 325• for approx 20-30 minutes. Turn croutons about every 10 minutes. Cooking time will vary depending on desired crispness.
Cool on sheet pan. They will continue to crisp up as they cool. I store mine in a ziplock bag.
