Message:  What blessing do you say on croutons, like the ones you put in a salad?
Blessings wise, assuming the same ingredients, what is the halakhic distinction between crackers and bread?
Thanks

   
Reply:  crackers are eaten like crackers, as a snack, but bread is eaten like bread, a meal. Croutons that are "real" pieces of bread, are Hamotzie. Most packaged croutons are made specifically as croutons and are like crackers, Mezonot.
