Just wanted to share a quick and easy addition to your upcoming winter soups.
I always save leftover, unused puff pastry bits. Why not utilize those extra bits to make croutons?
These couldn’t be simpler, and they add a lovely, buttery addition to tomato soup. I imagine this would be quite nice on many other soups, too. Also, it’s a bit unexpected if serving to guests. It’s a little pillow of buttery, flaky goodness. Mmmm…
Cut your frozen pastry bits into whatever shapes you’d like. I chose small rectangles. Place on a baking sheet. Season with your favorite seasonings. I used an Italian seasoning grinder. Bake until puffed and golden in a preheated 400 degree oven. About 10 minutes. Just use your judgement since these are small. You don’t want to overcook them!
