These croutons are the garnish for our Lettuce and Pea Soup.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slice half a baguette (1/4 pound) into 3/4-inch cubes (about 4 cups). Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with melted butter; season with salt. Toss well to coat; spread in an even layer.
Bake until golden brown, tossing halfway through, 15 to 20 minutes.
