First, make a loaf of bread:
Place all bread ingredients in the bread machine pan in the order recommended by the manufacturer.
Set crust on light and program for the basic cycle
Remove bread from the machine when finished, and allow to cool on a wire rack.
Next, cut up the loaf;
Slice off the entire rounded top of the bread and stand there at the counter, tearing it apart with your fingers and eating it like a barbarian. You won?t need it for the croutons, and it?s entirely too soft and delicious to eat in a refined, ladylike manner.
You might also want to set aside a few slices for sandwiches. You really only need half a loaf for the croutons.
Cut 3/4-inch slices, and further cut each slice into 3/4-inch cubes.
Lastly, make the croutons:
Preheat the oven to 375?.
Spread the bread cubes out on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Drizzle the butter over the bread cubes.
Bake for 5 minutes, remove the cubes from the oven and stir them up a bit.
Return to the oven, bake for another 5 minutes, stir again.
Return to the oven for 5 more minutes, or until the bread cubes are crunchy all the way through
Cool completely and store in an airtight container
