Jumbo Croutons – With Gluten Free, Dairy Free and Egg Free Options

Why do I love jumbo croutons?

Well, they’re amazing to just eat as snacks. (Yes, we regularly snack on croutons).

They’re also delicious in salads – because let’s be honest – croutons are usually the best part of the salad. So why not make them jumbo?

And – they’re also super amazing for quick appetizers – or quick appetizers that turn into full-blown meals because they taste so good and why not?
