I made these croutons just with some leftover bread and planned to pair it with tomato soup.The croutons were so good that half of it vanished in no time, the lil one so loved it. I reserved some to be served with soup and it was such a nice comforting combo. Homemade Croutons come out so crunchy and perfect to garnish and serve with soups and salads.
