Such a simple idea,but oh so effective! This was wonderful tossed through salad,adding great texture and taste. Looking forward to trying these little beauties with soup,come the cooler weather.
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.
