Crunchy Cheesey Croutons, or CCC's as they shall now be referred to!
Seriously good. I had to have croutons for another recipe on here; (Brussels Sprouts Caesar Salad with Creamy Avocado Dressing to be precise) and I also had some left over cheesey polenta all milled up with nowhere to go and sooooo this amazing recipe was born. I confess I stood over the tray eating them like the hot snack that they are. Better than pretzels, seriously. I will be making these often.
