Cheese  Croutons: Special Flavor in a few minutes!

Want to add a special flavor to your salads? Try these croutons made from soft cheeses such as cream cheese or goat cheese or crumbly cheeses such as one of the blue cheeses. This is a fun topping to add to any salad and is a great conversation piece when you have company!


Place cheese on parchment paper

Place cheese in the middle of a sheet of parchment paper.  Place another sheet of parchment paper on top of cheese. Press firmly on cheese to flatten.


Roll Out                                                   

With a rolling pin, roll out on the parchment  paper to an even depth, about ½ inch. Remove and reserve top sheet of parchment paper and  sprinkle with herbed bread crumbs.  This makes them look even more like croutons. Replace the top parchment and carefully flip over. Repeat with breadcrumbs on this side.



Put on a sheet tray and place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes.  Cut into crouton size pieces and add to your favorite salad.
