    Sharon123's Note:

    Such a cool idea! Great on top of tomato soup, or any soup! Sprinkle over salads, pair with fresh tomatoes, have fun! Adapted from 300 Sensational Soups by Carla Snyder and Meredith Deeds, and published in Family Fun magazine.

      Made for your *Wk 5 Football Pool* win & you are right This is such a cool idea! Ready-made croutons are costly here & there is little variety from which to choose. I halved the recipe for 2 of us, added garlic to the thyme/butter mix & used them atop an *empty the fridge* mixed green salad. The texture & flavor they added made for a satisfying meal. Thx for sharing this recipe & *Congrats* on your win. :-)

      Used Artisan French Bread with fresh and dried basil. They were placed on the top of a tomato basil hot soup. I had rather not sandwich these croutons, but use as open-faced. Of course, cheese and bread go together any time! Prepared as a participant in the Aus/NZ Swap #31 Aug 2009 Event and Magic of Herbs Tag Event in the Photo Cooking Forum.
