J&D's Deliciously Different Croutons Review

Your Salads Just Got More Delicious.

Recently, we got tired of salads tasting like… well, salads. So we combined the great taste of bacon with the perfect crunch of super premium gourmet croutons. It turned out that Bacon Croutons were so good that we found ourselves doing more than adding them to salads. We put them in soups. We dropped them in chili. We crunched them up and used them in mashed potatoes, meatloaf, fried chicken breading, casseroles, green beans and stuffing. And we inhaled them as (healthy) snacks. The possibilities are endless.

As if you needed another reason to “pig out,” Bacon Croutons are vegan and kosher, contain 0g of trans fat, are naturally flavored and have no cholesterol or preservatives.

The newest members of our innovative gourmet crouton family are:

  • J&D’s Tomato Basil Croutons – try them with your tomato soup

  • J&D’s Pretzel Bread Croutons - a tasty snack or stuffing

  • J&D’s Everything Croutons - just like an Everything bagel, with onions, garlic, poppy seeds, sesame seeds and sea salt

All of our croutons work on any salad, and start with only the finest ingredients. You’re just one bite away from happiness!

    J&D's Croutons are Not Just for Salads      RECIPES 

     It is for recipes like these that we made J&D's Pretzel Bread Croutons.

    Beer, cheese, pretzel bread - need we say more?


  • 1 1/2 cups diced carrots
  • 1 1/2 cups diced onion
  • 1 1/2 cups diced celery
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups beer
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup flour

  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, stir together carrots, onion, celery, and garlic. Stir in hot pepper sauce, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Pour in chicken broth and beer; simmer until vegetables are tender, about 12 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. Meanwhile, heat butter in a large soup pot over medium-high heat. Stir in flour with a wire whisk; cook, stirring until the flour is light brown, about 3 or 4 minutes. Gradually stir in milk, whisking to prevent scorching, until thickened. Remove from heat, and gradually stir in cheese. Keep warm.
  3. Stir beer mixture into cheese mixture. Stir in Dijon mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and dry mustard. Adjust for hot pepper sauce. Bring to a simmer, and cook 10 minutes. Serve topped with Pretzel Bread Croutons

  4. Add pasta to baking dish and mix together. Add remaining cheese to the top of the mixture, then add croutons.

I was very happy to get to try J&D's Deliciously Different Croutons.  I got to sample 3 different flavors.  Pretzel Bread-Everything and Tomato Basil Croutons.  I was inspired by the recipes on J&D's, so I decided to make 3 different dishes.  I chose to make a traditional green tossed salad and I used all 3 flavors of croutons in the salad and everyone including myself really enjoyed all the different flavors and crunchy goodness of these delicious croutons! I then made a creamy mushroom soup and had samplings of each type of crouton in each bowl.  My family enjoyed the savory croutons added to the soup and asked for more! The third dish I chose to make was a tuna salad made with sun dried tomato albacore tuna topped with the tomato basil croutons.  This was everyone's favorite of the trio.  The tomato basil croutons made a delicious difference to an ordinary tuna casserole.  The flavor and crusty topping added to this dish was really good.  My family ate it again the next day for lunch!  All in all the J&D's Deliciously Different Croutons sampling was a big hit and everyone agreed that these croutons were way better than any they have tried before.  I think they taste homemade and have a lot of great flavors to compliment a variety of dishes.  I recommend them.
