Instructions:

Yield: 4 servings

In a large skillet, heat margarine. Add seasonings. Cook for about 1 minute to soften. Stir in bread cubes and saute until browned and crisp. Scatter on tops of soups or salads just before serving. Makes 2 cups. VARIATIONS: - try other seasonings of your choice such as curry powder, cut into cubes. Spread on ungreased baking sheet. Toast in 400 deg F oven for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally, until golden brown and crisp.
