“I like to serve these croutons on top of "10-Minute Tuscan Tomato Soup With Parmesan Toasts". I have also substituted Swiss cheese for the cheddar cheese and serve these croutons in French onion soup. They are yummy.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 slice thin-sliced bread, white or 4 slice whole wheat bread
  • 29.58 ml butter, melted
  • 2 slice cheddar cheese (or American or Swiss)


  1. On stove, heat a grill pan (or frying pan) over medium-high heat.
  2. Brush one side of each bread slice with butter.
  3. Place two slices in the pan, buttered side down.
  4. Top with one slice of cheese each, then top with remaining slices of bread, buttered side up.
  5. Grill 2-3 minutes, until toasted; turn and grill other side.
  6. Cut into 1-inch squares.
  7. Serve your choice of soup hot, topped with a few croutons per serving.
