Croutons are small chunks of bread that are toasted or baked until crisp. They may be seasoned with a variety of herbs and other flavorings, such as cheese, garlic, and tomato. They are most commonly used to add texture to dishes like salads and soups. They can also be used to make stuffing or savory bread puddings. Croutons may be purchased from a store or homemade.
