  • Preheat the oven to 400
  • Transfer cut bread cubes to a 9x13 rimmed baking tray.
  • Drizzle with olive oil, garlic powder, and salt and toss to coat. Spread the bread out in an even layer.
  • Bake on the center rack, tossing cubes twice during cooking until edges are just golden. About 12 to 15 minutes. Just keep an eye on yours.
  • Serve croutons warm if desired or cool to room temperature. Store in an air tight container for up to one day and re-heat in the oven to crisp again if needed.
