With just two ingredients, you can throw together a fun topping for your soups and salads with our sesame seed bun croutons. Because homemade croutons are so easy and budget-friendly to make at home, there’s no good reason to buy them ready-made at the store. Our cheeseburger soup with sesame seed bun croutons is going to be your new favorite way to use ground beef on a weeknight. “Leave the grill off when you crave a cheeseburger in cold months and whip up this soup!” said one Test Kitchen Professional. Of course, if you have extra cheeseburger buns, you can double or triple this crouton recipe and put them over a side salad with your soup. The possibilities are endless with this easy, two-ingredient crouton recipe.

How to Make It

Preheat oven to 400°F. Toss together bun pieces, oil, and salt. Spread in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake in preheated oven until crispy and lightly browned, about 8 minutes.
