This was a life changing experience for me. I like mine well toasted and still soft in the center. I fry them for a couple minutes. You only need to make your own once to never buy a box again.Yesterday morning I made croutons, starting with the heels from several loaves of bread:

Cube the bread. Melt butter with olive oil, seasoned salt, and oregano. Pour over the cubes in a bowl and mix to cover all the bread.

Preheat the oven to 325 F and spread foil on a cookie sheet. The foil helps the bread crisp, and makes cleanup easier. Put the bread in a single layer and bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Flip the bread / stir and bake for another 8 to 10 minutes.
I want mine crisp but not too brown.

They are good for weeks if stored in a plastic bag with the air squeezed out.
