Homemade Croutons

These are so much better than the store bought kind of croutons! Once you have had them, you will be spoiled for life!

12 slices day-old bread (any kind you like)
½ cup margarine, melted
½ t garlic powder
½ t Italian seasoning

Heat oven to 275 degrees. Cut bread into cubes and put in a large baking pan with sides. Combine melted margarine, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning. Drizzle over bread cubes and lightly toss until coated. Bake at 275 degrees for 30 minutes. Turn off oven and allow croutons to remain in oven for about 30 minutes. Remove from oven, cool, and store in an air-tight container.
