Tammy's Review: 

This is a delicious crouton recipe! It's quick and easy, especially if you're using leftover garlic bread to make it, and it adds a nice garlic flavor to salads. You can alter the seasonings to fit your tastes; this is just a basic recipe. My rating: 10/10


I even like to snack on these just by themselves ;) Please see the recipe above for my complete review! Thanks! ~Tammy
