May 13 – Crouton Day

Posted on May 13, 2016

Like some other “bread” words, including baguette, brioche, biscuit, crepe, and croissant, the word crouton comes to the English language from French. The word specifically comes from the French word for “crust.”

And just like “French bread” and “French toast,” what a delicious acquisition for our language!

Croutons are pieces of bread that are often seasoned and then sautéed or rebaked in oil or butter. Sometimes croutons are smallish jagged hunks of bread, and sometimes they are cubes. They can be added to soups or salads – and of course they can be munched as a snack food.

To celebrate Crouton Day, learn how to make your own fresh and delicious croutons...

Or use store-bought, unseasoned croutons to make bread pudding...

Or taste-test several brands of seasoned croutons on salad.
