Soups, regardless of the season, are enhanced by a few savoury, crunchy croutons. These are the perfect topping for Thanksgiving or Christmas soups, but are enjoyable any time of the year to perk up a meal.
Preheat oven to 250˚F.
Take 4 slices of thick-cut bread, and lightly butter both sides.
Lay the bread directly on the oven rack, and toast for 15-20 minutes, until golden and crispy. Remove bread and cool on a rack. Cut into pieces and serve.
