If you choose to utilize plain bread cubes We advise tossing them onto a flat pan and bake for 10 to 20 minutes in a 350 ° F oven. This brief time in the oven will dry the bread, making it stand much better in the packing mix. Keep in mind, however, you will lose a little bit of herb taste when not utilizing the croutons.
