Bacon Grilled Cheese Croutons

This post is brought to you by Dave’s Killer Bread.


We are on a soup kick over here! And did you know that January is National Soup Month? Clearly, it’s the perfect time to enjoy soup, especially since the cold weather is here to stay for the next several weeks. (Oh, boy.)

As a kid growing up, I remember coming in from playing outside with my sister in the chilly temps and my mom making us tomato soup with a grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch.


Even today as an adult, I still crave a good tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich after being outside in the cold, which, of course, inspired the recipe below. It’s the best of both worlds and less messy than dipping my grilled cheese into my soup. Plus, there’s bacon. And we all know bacon makes everything better.


Even though there’s bacon in this recipe, I kept the New Year and weight loss resolutions in mind by using DKB Thin-Sliced Powerseed Bread. It’s made from organic fruit juices instead of sugar, so it only has 60 calories (3g fiber, 3g of protein) per serving, so there’s room for a bacon splurge every now and then.



And, of course, the grainy texture and hearty flavor of this bread pairs nicely with a warm bowl of soup, especially when it comes to Bacon Grilled Cheese Croutons. I mean, you can’t go wrong with that, and you probably won’t be able to eat soup and grilled cheese the same way again!

Bacon Grilled Cheese Croutons



Spread butter on both slices of bread.

Butter side down, place bread on a griddle/Griddler or frying pan. Layer cheese and bacon and then top with the other buttered slice of bread. Cook until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted.


Place grilled cheese sandwich on a cutting board and allow to cool slightly. Then, cut into 16 pieces.


Add Bacon Grilled Cheese Croutons to soup, grab a spoon, and enjoy!


Recipe makes 16 croutons/1 serving


Question of the Day

After playing outside as a kid: soup or hot chocolate? Or something else? 


  1. hot chocolate was always waiting for me and my sisters after a day in the snow! We’d shed our snow suits and boots in the mudroom and sit right in the entry way and drink it. Funny the things you remember so vividly!

  2. Cup O’ Soup or in other words “salt in a bowl”… Truly, these were a staple when I was a kid. Just rip open the package and pour in hot water. If that little ball of salt didn’t melt all the way and you ate it by accident though…. ugh

    They even still make those?

  3. Tina~ what is your fav tomato soup? I had some tomato soup & grilled cheese last night and I wasn’t thrilled with the taste of my tomato soup so I’m looking for better recommendations. And the bacon grilled cheese croutons look so yummy! Making them this weekend as it’s going to be freezing here in Minnesota :-/

  4. and I forgot to add, hot cocoa after sledding all day outside with my little brother and friends, Swiss Miss with little marshmellows!

  5. Tina! Where do you buy this bread? I don’t have a costco or sam’s club membership – and I don’t think you do either. Was wondering where i could buy it from?

  6. I think I missed a part of American childhood, there was no cold winter day food traditions in our house. Probably because AZ is back in the 60’s already, last night during my track workout I thought “well that was a fun 10 runs in full running gear, if that! ” So the craving for soup has kind of started to pass lol However, I’ll take a good grilled cheese sandwich ANY DAY! My grandma did usee to make her grileld cheese with miracle whip in it ha ha!

  7. Hot chocolate as a kid but as an adult…soup! I keep looking for that bread…I NEED it in my belly! lol Your croutons sound wonderful but I would only be able to put 1 piece in my soup at a time….have terrible texture issues…could not possibly eat soggy croutons! :o) Just reading the story of Quinn enjoying his soup and soggy crackers made me shudder….yes…I am a mess!
