These packaged (in bags, found in stores) Parmesan croutons are the best quality you’ll find, and our loyal customers think they’re better than homemade. You can really taste the all natural ingredients. We put our heart and soul into the creation, seasoning, baking and hand cutting of each batch. It is an artisanal approach we’ve perfected, and these cubes come as close to fresh homemade as you can buy in a premade package or as store bought. In our recipe (considered truly exceptional by our customers), the sourdough bread is made by hand, the olive oil is extra virgin, the parmesan is Italiano bold (and is added at the halfway point of toasting), the garlic fresh, with an accent of kosher salt at the end. The result is sublimely crunchy and garlic, cheesy premade croutons for all cuisine requiring authentic ingredients. National for sale. Local. San Francisco. San Jose. Oakland. CA. California.

French Onion Soup
— Featuring Virginia’s Parmesan Croutons —
10 yellow onions, sliced
¼ cup olive oil
2 bay leaves
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 quarts beef broth (or vegetable broth)
If broth is unseasoned, add:
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped
5 ounces of Virginia's Parmesan Croutons
¾ cup grated Gruyère cheese
Sauté sliced onions in olive oil until caramelized (a nice dark, rich brown). Add chopped garlic and continue to sauté for 5 more minutes. Pour in broth, bay leaves, and thyme. Simmer for 30 minutes.
Divide Virginia's Perfect Croutons into 4 oven-safe soup bowls. (It's okay to save some to serve on the side too!) Ladle in soup, sprinkle with grated Gruyère cheese.
Place bowls under a broiler for 1-2 minutes until cheese melts. Serve immediately.
