The best way to use up stale bread or bread that is in danger of going stale. You can use any kind of bread--sandwich bread, French bread, Italian bread, English muffins, hamburger/hot dog buns, dinner rolls, etc.

Take all your stale bread and cut it into cubes. Place on a baking sheet. Drizzle the cubes with a little melted butter, and sprinkle with herbs and/or garlic powder. Bake at 225 until crispy and browned, stirring occasionally. This could take an hour or more, depending on how much bread there is. But that's okay--it's important to make sure the croutons are completely crispy, or they will mold in your pantry. Once done, let them cool, and throw them in a Ziploc bag for future use. If crisped all the way through, they'll keep indefinitely.
