Delicious and EASY to make homemade crouton recipe. You have to try!

  I’m a long time crouton lover, I love anything in salad that gives a big crunch. However, I don’t like the break your tooth crunch you get from some store boughten croutons.

Perfect melted cheese #HeavenlyMelt

Growing up, onions were an essential in our house; you might even say a staple dish. My Dad can make the meanest onion sandwich you’ve ever tasted, and what’s a piece of steak without a buttery dripping mushroom and onion side!
