Soup Croutons

Easy Croutons recipe

This easy croutons recipe has been in our family for as long as I can remember. Passed down from our grandmother to our mother's to us. Every time grandma Liz made her Wedding Soup she made these soup croutons to go along with it.

I've only had these in Wedding Soup, but I'm sure they would be great in any of your favorite soups. I had a recipe for these and have made them several times. They just weren't the same as grandma's soup croutons.

Once again I had to call out the reserves, my cousin Jimmy from Arizona had the recipe just the way that grandma made them.

Here is the recipe for soup croutons:

6 large eggs (separated)
