Tuesdays Tips & Tricks

3 May

So today I wanted to write about different ways to use stale bread and I had a few good ideas, or so I thought, (croutons, bruschetta, etc.) but it seems that someone has written about this very idea rather brilliantly, so I’m going to direct you over to her site! Rebecca shares her 13 Ways to Use Stale Bread and just reading her article has me wanting to get my kitchen and start creating. 

One other aside because it’s pretty common sense but works well is to keep bread in the freezer until you need it. I love to buy fresh bread from our deli section, but it goes bad quickly if you don’t eat it all right away. Usually, I’ll buy rolls for a particular meal I’m making but since I know we’ll only use a few of them I pop the rest in the freezer in individual sandwich bags. This helps to avoid freezer burn and I reserve the very top of the freezer for bread/rolls so that they don’t get squished by the other items in the freezer. I’ve also started to freeze muffins, cookies, brownies and other freezer friendly items that are nice to take out in small quantities when you need them.

What sort of things are hanging out in your freezer?

And in case you still want to read more about what to do with your stale bread, check out some recipes here.

    I really need to get better with bread – the amount of times I end up throwing it away is really shameful. So thank you for this!
