What Can You Do With Croutons
The obvious use is for salads but croutons also make wonderful soup toppers. There is nothing better than a fresh summer tomato salad served with homemade crunchy croutons!
How To Store Homemade Croutons
To prevent the croutons from losing their crispness, I store them in a gallon zip bag but I do not seal it completely. Leave the edge open to allow any moisture to escape.
How Long Will Croutons Keep
Ours usually get eaten within two days as we love to snack on them. But, these croutons should easily keep for one week as long as they do not get wet or exposed to moisture.
