NATIONAL CROUTON DAY
National Crouton Day is observed annually on May 13th.
Many of our words for bread-related foods come from the French and for good reason. The French love bread. Croutons are no different. The French word croûte means crust. Croutons are often made from day old bread which has been cut into cubes and seasoned with herbs, oil or butter. The bread is then either toasted in the oven or tossed in a hot pan until crunchy.
