This soup is a warm welcome to what’s to come….The cold. My mother used to make this soup when I was younger. At first I hated it! And for doing so she would make this everyday (not kidding), until I liked it. So, for those of you who like soups, being healthy, on a diet, or need to add some to your collection. This is the soup for it. Serve this as an appetizer, light lunch, or even light dinner with a side of toasted bread, croutons on top, or rice. Enjoy.

You've probably eaten a sandwich with a salad inside; now try a salad with a sandwich inside. Strips of corned beef are tossed with lettuce and rye-bread croutons, then topped with Thousand Island dressing—the real old-fashioned kind with "islands" of pickle relish, hard-cooked egg, and chopped scallion.

An avid hunter, this reader devised this stew to showcase his catch which is usually duck. We found a combination of chicken and supermarket duck a fine substitute, or use all chicken. Make this a day ahead to allow the flavors to blossom and so you can skim the fat from the top. Use reserved Crisp Croutons to top the stew.

A healthy, tasty, and spicy soup I made for Thanksgiving for a Turkish/Japanese crowd, who really enjoyed the heat! I used homemade chili powder from de arbol chilis, and homemade chicken stock instead of vegetable. Simple to make. The chopping takes a little while if you are slow like me, and it cooks for a long time, but does not really need to be attended too much. From a book called 400 Soups. The original recipe also included garlic croutons for topping.

I'm always trying to create new dips for me and my husband to enjoy on movie night! So that's how I came up with this one! It tasted so good we wanted to just eat it by the spoonful! Then we ate it the next day for lunch as a sandwich spread...And then we tried it as a soup by thinning it out with chicken broth and tossing some garlic croutons on top! We loved it ALL 3 ways!

This is a fantastic soup especially on cold days. You can also put soup in individual onion soup bowls, add a few croutons and top with a handful of cheese; Mozzerella, Swiss, or whatever white cheese you like. Pop into oven on 350* and bake until cheese is melted and slightly golden.

The smoky essence of Southwest cuisine infuses this soup. Charred chiles, tomatillos, and roasted garlic are theme flavors you'll savor. Try Chili-Cheese Croutons on top.

This pretty "pink" blue cheese dressing is just delicious over crisp iceberg lettuce with red onion, cucumber, shredded cheddar cheese, and tomato, with a handful of crunchy croutons on top!

I was looking for a recipe for a broccoli rice casserole that had croutons on top, so I requested it in the forum. Chef Loversdream posted a slew of recipes. This was the first one I made, and it is wonderful. I did leave out the celery and used Caesar croutons.

A wonderful treat to make from left-over pound cake. I serve the pecan sauce as a dipping sauce with frilly toothpicks in each crouton. I actually think this would be good with ice cream, sprinkled with croutons & topped with the sauce.
