We always like to add some texture to our soups. Often, it’s croutons, made by cubing bread, tossing it with olive oil, salt, pepper, and garlic, then baking it in the oven. It doesn’t take all that much effort, but, what about the times that you’re busy in the kitchen with other things, and just can’t fit in a batch of freshly-made croutons? Well, this post is an answer for you.
We won’t even include a recipe for these croutons because they’re too easy and fast. Using a cookie or biscuit cutter, simply cut rounds from a slice or two of bread. Place under the broiler to toast on one side (watch like a hawk, as broiled bread goes from browned and toasty to black and charred in seconds), flip, toast until lightly brown on the other side, sprinkle with Parmesan (or other cheese) and broil until bubbling. Place on a bowl of soup. Nice.
