Rye Bread Croutons

Croutons are called grzanki in Polish – the word is plural and means something that have been heated up.

Rye bread croutons are used as a soup accompaniment. (There will be future posts on this topic)


Several slices of rye bread

2-3 tablespoons of olive oil (not virgin)

I used some of my own sour dough loaf.



Pre-heat the oven to GM4  – 180°C

Cut the bread into small cubes

Heat the olive oil in a frying pan.

Toss the bread cubes in the oil and fry gently for a few minutes.


Place the cubes onto a baking tray and put in the oven for around 5 – 10 minutes till golden.


Add several to each serving of soup.

Sprinke with salt flakes or ground salt and eat them as a nibble or little snack.
