So Cute, So Tiny, So Genius

Are you a dipper? I know, that could be taken many ways. But I'm referring to a soup dipper. Is soup not soup unless you have a sandwich, roll, biscuit, etc to dip into it? Well, if you are, you're not alone! Our entire family is! Anytime I serve soup I know I have to prepare something for dipping purposes. And I believe that the original dipper of all dippers was the grilled cheese into tomato soup! Who doesn't do this? (Okay, if it's you, I'm not criticizing! I am just shocked you don't!) We do NOT eat tomato soup w/o grilled cheese (or cheese toasties if you prefer that term) frying in a skillet on the stove. And usually each of us puts away more than one. There is just something magical and so right about the flavor combo. So when I saw this idea on Pinterest I knew it would be something we could all enjoy (especially Alex) and couldn't believe I hadn't thought of it before. You know those ideas, right?? The kind that when you see them you wonder to yourself "Seriously, this is so perfect I can't imagine why I haven't been doing it all along." Instead of dipping, why not have a whole party of tiny dippers floating along waiting to be devoured. I know, too cute!  Sometimes the most obvious solutions are the ones that are most genius!

Grilled Cheese Croutons
2 slices Texas Toast, or bread of your choice
1 slice American Cheese

Prepare grilled cheese. When finished, cut off crusts and then slice into mini crouton sized pieces. My sandwich made 9. I like to serve these on the side so they can be added a few at a time to avoid mushiness.
