The Pyrenees made a huge barrier between Spain and France for most of their histories. Then the communist, military rule of Franco deterred outside influence. They've only been a democratic country for 40 years.

I never realized communism had a suck a large affect on croutons.
That's stuff you just don't see on the History Channel

Wait a minute. The penny just dropped. Franco wasn't a communist. He was a fascist. The West tolerated him because he was anti-communist.

I can see the appeal to using the stuffing mix as croutons, but I can't eat the stuff because it's way too salty for my taste.

I've never used it as croutons, but I've eaten stovetop before. It doesn't taste salty at all to me. It has that "chicken herbage" kind of flavor. I like adding my own sauteed onions and celery to it because it's just right for my tastes.
Just goes to show ya...

I've never made croutons and I pick out those teeth breakers one gets in a restaurant. I think stove top stuffing would be too salty for me too.
I do enjoy a sprinkle of sunflower seeds on top of a salad though.

Maybe I'll make some croutons. Are there any tricks besides butter and herbs?
