To make croutons for this recipe:
Cut up 4 to 6 slices of bread (enough to make a generous 2 cups) into cubes. Melt ½ cup butter in a medium hot frying pan. Add bread and gently stir and let them absorb the butter. Stir and mix and cook them until crusty and browned. Remove from heat and use in above recipe.
