- 1 cup water, boiled
- 1 stick margarine

How to make
Add margarine to boiling water and melt. Shut off burner and add 1 cup of flour to melted margarine, stirring constantly, until thick and smooth. Remove from burner and completely cool. Add 4 eggs to cooled mixture, one at a time and mixing thoroughly after each addition. Add a dash of salt. You may add other herbs if you would like to attain a flavored crouton. It should form into a ball. Add more flour to counter top or pastry sheet. Knead dough - it should be soft. Roll part of dough into a snake-like rope, approximately 3/4" thick. Cut into 1" pieces. Continue to do this until dough is completely cut into pieces.
Fry each piece in approximately 1" of oil (dough pieces should be completely covered with oil). Keep turning so that they become light golden on all sides. Remove from oil with serrated spatula.
