Toasted Croutons

  • 1 loaf French bread
  • 1 (8 ounce) package of cream cheese
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/2 lb butter
  • 4 egg whites, stiffly beaten

1. Remove crust from French bread and cut into 1-inch squares. In double boiler, melt cheeses and butter. When creamy, fold in beaten egg whites. Mixture will have funny texture and look.

2. Dip cubes into mixture and place on a waxed paper lined cookie sheet and freeze. When frozen, place in a plastic bag and store in freezer.

3. To serve, bake frozen cubes at 450 degrees for about 8 minutes. Serve warm. Especially delicious when served with Creamy Tomato Basil Soup.
