I have a friend who owns an ice cream shop near my work called The Blue Pig.

During the fall she starts serving soup and starts making these ahhhhhhhhhhhmazing garlic butter croutons.

Sometimes I will go to her shop, chat, and then starts shoveling fists full of these gems into my mouth.

They are that good!

They are even better served on top of homemade tomato soup and of course on salad.

Or, you could easily just sit down with a bowl and treat them like potato chips.

It’s your call.

I won’t judge you.

These beauties are tossed in butter, garlic, and lots of salt.

These are not the “low-fat” croutons so you should probably eat them in moderation.

Unless you are a fan of delicious goodness.

Then you should probably shovel them into your mouth by the fistful.

Again, no judgment here.

I certainly wouldn’t blame you.

French bread comes in many sizes. How many ounces should I get?

I made these yesterday to serve with home made tomato basil soup. I need not have worried about how to store the croutons. They were all gone by the end of the day. They were absolutely delicious in the soup, but there was a lot of snacking going on. Yum!!!

Although I expect they won't last long, how should the croutons be stored?

Hi Cheryl! I usually just put them in a air tight container like a Tupperware or ziptop bag. Hope you enjoy the croutons :)

2" squares? How does one fit a crouton of that size in their mouth? Besides, your pics do not show croutons that big. Misprint?
