Croutons aren’t just for salad anymore! Everyone knows that grilled cheese and tomato soup go together like apple pie and ice cream, and this fun take on grilled cheese turns the gooey sandwich into bite-sized pieces that are perfect for topping your favourite hearty soup. We like to keep it classic with cheddar, but you can easily sub in your favourite cheeses and spreads for an elevated gourmet grilled cheese crouton. Just be sure to eat them quickly once you’ve added them to your soup to ensure maximum crispiness.
