Homemade Croutons using Leftover Hotdog Buns

Most of the time when we have a few leftover hotdog or hamburger buns, I throw them in the freezer, then forget about them until they are too freezer burned to use.  Here's a quick and easy way to use up those buns before they go bad.  It's extremely easy and quick to prepare.  Much better than prepacked croutons!  Enjoy!

Hotdog Bun Croutons

2-3 leftover hot dog or hamburger buns 
1/4 cup olive oil
Kosher Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
garlic powder (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
Cut up bread into bite size pieces.  Spread out on a sheet pan.  Drizzle with olive oil, and season to taste with salt, pepper, and garlic powder (if using).   Mix well (I use my hands to do this).  Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until browned and crispy.
