In February 2015, a family-owned American company, Rothbury Farms, founded National Crouton Day! This humble dish is celebrated across the USA as a fun food holiday!
Every year on May 13, National Crouton Day honours a delectable topping that shouldn't be disregarded.
With good reason, we borrow many of the French phrases for meals that go well with bread. French people adore bread. Croutons are the same. The term crust in French is croûte. Bread from the previous day that has been cut into cubes and seasoned with herbs, oil, or butter is frequently used to make croutons. The bread is then either tossed in a heated pan until crunchy or roasted in the oven.
The salad topping that most of us are most accustomed to is croutons. And when we top our salads with croutons, we have a little party—a crunch celebration. Each tasty, crunchy mouthful increases our love of the crisp food.
