Croutons make a delicious accompaniment to soup, and make salads that little bit more exciting. Not only are they quick and easy to make, but it is also a great way to use up leftover bread. Based on the brands I used each portion is about 92 calories.
I cooked these croutons using a T-Fal Actifry, but if you don't have one, then the oven or frying pan are just as good.
